Biography:  Priscilla Fawcett was born in 1932 in Blewbury Berkshire England. She grew up in the house where Kenneth Grahame wrote the Wind In the Willows.  Although she never had formal training, she has become a well respected contemporary scientific illustrator.  Her talents are not without precedent in her family as her grandfather was Malcolm Fawcett who wrote and illustrated books about Lepidoptra.

Living in London in the early 1960s, she met fellow illustrator Joanna Erasmus who introduced her to botanist Dr. William T. Stearn (1911-2001) then of the British Natural History Museum.  According to Fawcett, he became a mentor to her. 

Fawcett was at Kew drawing Pandanaceae for Harold St. John, a botanist at the Bernice Bishop Museum, Hawaii, when Dr. P.B. ( Barry) Tomlinson suggested she come to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden (FTBG). In 1965, she joined the scientific staff at Fairchild and worked there until 1989 as Botanic Illustrator.  While there, she met her husband, Dr. Knut Norstog, a cycad specialist.

Fawcett’s water colors, also done while at FTBG, were exhibited in 1968 at the Hunt Botanical Library; in 1969 at the Ninth International Botanical Congress in Seattle; as well as at Calloway Gardens, Neiman Marcus in Bal Harbour, and the Miami Art Center.  In 1973, she was invited to participate in the Botanical Society of South Africa’s exhibition honoring the sixtieth anniversary of the National Botanic Gardens of South Africa.  This may or may not be a complete list of her exhibitions.

Fawcett drew just over one thousand botanic illustrations while at FTBG.  Of these, many were done for the Flora of the Bahama Archipelago (1982) by Drs. Donovan S. and Helen B. Correll.  She also provided the illustrations for Dr. Tomlinson’s books The Biology of Trees Native to Tropical Florida (1980) and The Botany of Mangroves (1986).  She was the primary illustrator for the Flora of Florida Project and she provided fellow FTBG researchers illustrations for their various articles and publications.  Fawcett also taught a popular course on botanic illustration for FTBG’s Adult Education Program.

In 1989, Norstog and Fawcet established that the snout weevil, Rhopalotria mollis, was the pollinator for the cycad Zamia furfuracea.  In 1993, in recognition of this accomplishment, they were awarded the Robert H. Montgomery Medal for distinguished achievement in the field of palms and cycads.

Processing:  Botanic Illustrations categorized by Lynka Woodbury and Herbarium volunteers throughout 1993-1995. Entire collection arranged and processed by Janet Mosely, Spring, 2009; finding aid developed by Janet Mosely, Spring, 2009.
