Jill Adams was a South African artist who has specialised in natural history illustrations. She was born in Durban in 1932, but lived for part of her life in Kimberley, where, on the staff of the McGregor Museum, she published her illustrated Flowering Plants of the Northern Cape (1976). She achieved public renown for her paintings of Aloes. She subsequently collaborated with ornithologist Richard Liversidge making their book, The birds around us: birds of the Southern African region (1990). The illustrations produced for The birds around us have been described as "the product of her outstanding draughtsmanship, coupled with a keen sense of observation and knowledge of the "natural pose" of birds." Jill Adams died 1916 in Somerset West. (Thank you Wiki, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jill_Adams_(artist))
