Pipkin demonstrates mastery of her medium of choice - watercolor - in her oversized works of trees and flowers that are meticulous and accurate in detail, yet artful in scale and composition.

Her work has been featured in one-person shows across the country, including the U.S.Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C., the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Daytona Beach, the Olbrich Botanical Garden in Madison, Wisconsin, The Museum of the Southwest in Midland, Texas, and the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts. Her work is included in the collections of the Smithsonian Museum, the U.S. Botanic Garden, the Washington Post, The National Institutes of Health, and Fannie Mae Corporation.

The Athenaeum scheduled the exhibition of these glorious floral works to leverage the interest and popularity of the Old Town Alexandria Historic Home and Garden tour in the neighborhood on Saturday, April 20.
