This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Maud H. Purdy (1873-1965)

American botanical artist Maud H. Purdy was born in Philadelphia and studied at the Philadelphia Institute of Art.  She moved to Brooklyn, New York around 1890 and opened a salon on Bedford Avenue near the Pratt Institute, where she taught young women the art of painting.

Purdy also designed textiles and tapestries, and decorated china and ceramics.  She was hired by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in 1913, and collaborated with this institution for over 30 years.  During this time, she illustrated a number of popular books, including Fundamentals of Botany, All About African Violets, and All About Houseplants.  One of her most impressive projects for the Garden was a series of 40 paintings of Japanese irises (several of which were exhibited at the 1933 Chicago World's Fair).  Purdy also produced pen-and-ink illustrations of plants collected during the 1930 Astor expedition to the Galápagos Islands.
