About Agardenschronicle

Sales 316
On Etsy since 2020

Trapped by (carnivorous) plants.

My name is François Sockhom Mey. I have been passionately interested in carnivorous plants since 2004. I have intensively studied their systematics and ecology in France where I live, the USA, my native Cambodia, as well as Vietnam, Borneo, Sumatra and the Seychelles, with particular interest in Nepenthes pitcher plants, of which I have named a number of species, as well as orchids. I am also a botanical artist and have illustrated dozens of new species and produced commission work for publication.

I have been writing a blog since 2010, named ‘A Garden’s Chronicle’. First dedicated almost exclusively to carnivorous plants, it is now also focusing on wildlife observation in general (including entomology, herping and bird watching) either in France or in the various countries I visited. The backbone of this blog (and its associated FB and IG accounts) is still botany however with a particular highlight on carnivorous plants and orchids either in the wild or in cultivation.

As of 2020 and the start of my Etsy shop, I am now dedicating most of my time to the creation of watercolor botanical illustrations and black and white scientific drawings for academic papers. To fund new botanical expeditions, I'm selling prints of my illustrations as well as bookmarks -all made by myself. I am also open to commission; if interested, please message me. I really hope I can share my art with as many people as possible. At the moment, I am focusing on carnivorous plants but also intend to illustrate orchids, ferns, ant plants, parasitic plants and other strange botanical wonders in the future.

    I have been working on carnivorous plants taxonomy for many years (the genus Nepenthes mainly) and am now dedicating most of my time to the creation of watercolor botanical illustrations and black and white scientific drawings for academic papers.
