Frances Palmer was the daughter of a Devonshire Clergyman. At an early age she became an amateur, but extremely gifted, botanist. After retiring from her teaching career she discovered that she had a great talent for painting the wild flowers which she loved. Her work was brought to the attention of the Medici Society who subsequently purchased some fifty of her designs for their beautiful greetings cards. Frances was the wife of John Palmer, the distinguished North Devon watercolourist.
