Monika de Vries Gohlke
I am a professional artist, designer and botanical illustrator.
I received my training at Parsons School of Design in New York,
the Brooklyn Museum Art School, the Manhattan Graphic Center,
New York University and the New York Botanical Garden.
Working out of my studio in Brooklyn, I have been commissioned
to develop numerous designs for the textile, wallpaper, carpet,
tabletop, dinnerware, greeting card and illustration markets.
My work has been published in "Kitchen Garden", "Emergency
Medicine" magazine, "Pharmaton Natural Health Products",
the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the New York Botanical Garden, the
Department of Biology at New York University and Heronswood Nursery
in Washington state. The New York Public Library has acquired
my prints and drawings for their permanent collection.
Among my clients in the world of fashion and home decorating
are Williams Sonoma, Echo Scarves, Lands' End, Einstein Mooomjay
and Polo Ralph Lauren. My paintings, drawings and prints have
been exhibited both nationally and abroad.
I am a member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators, the
