Brazilian botanical illustrator and teacher Rosane Quintella passed away on Friday 11th September age 61.
Rosanne was born on 25th February 1959 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Her studies included:
One of her works completed in 2005 forms part of the Shirley Sherwood Collection.
When she returned to Brazil she became a permanent member of the teaching staff at Centro de Ilustração Botânica do Paraná (CIBD) and taught botanical illustration there for the next 14 years - and was apparently much loved by her students and peers.
She also continued to complete her own scientific botanical illustration works in ink and watercolour and was affiliated to UNIC - National Union of Scientific Illustrators.
Rosanne passed away on Friday 11th September 2020. There are tributes to her on:

Here's our e-book finally completed.
We could not allow such an important event to be just a good memory. So we decided to take another step and face another challenge. It seemed simple, but it was months of work and patience of luiz berri, adjustments, wait, doubts and a lot of message exchange, e-mail, watsapp and everything else that could help get the material and information we needed.

Enjoy to inspire even more
