A Pacific Coast native, Antoinette has lived the majority of her life in the Pacific Northwest. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Art (Emphasis in Painting and Printmaking) from San Diego State University and received a Certificate of Botanical Illustration (with Distinction) from Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh in 2018.
Her current focus is on native plants of the Pacific Northwest with an emphasis on 3-D paper botany. Collecting specimens from the North Cascades to the Salish Sea, Antoinette gathers native plants, lichens, and seaweeds to study and recreate in paper. Other media include graphite pencil drawing, and pen and ink illustrations.
