Speaker Bio

Latifat Apatira is a plant enthusiast and artist. Raised in San Mateo County, California, she spent her youth exploring the expansive rural areas of the Peninsula. Her fascination with the natural world directly results from the wonders produced by observing the Peninsula’s oak woodlands, coastal scrublands, and redwood forests.
As a second-generation, Nigerian-American, visibly Muslim woman, Apatira is proud to bring an element of diversity to the botanical art landscape. She is a member of the international Nature Printing Society, the California Society of Printmakers, and the American Society of Botanical Artists. Her work has been exhibited throughout northern California including solo exhibitions hosted by the San Francisco Botanical Garden’s Helen Crocker Russel Library of Horticulture, the Caldwell Gallery, and the Redwood Shores Library Gallery. Her artwork and writings have been published by the Parks Stewardship Forum and The Permanente Journal. She recently participated in an artist-in-residency program at the Oak Spring Garden Foundation. Apatira’s prints are held in private collections throughout the United States and since 2019, she has served the community through plant and garden print commissions.
