About Mimi


Mimi Osborne

Mimi Osborne moved to San Francisco shortly after receiving her degree in Architecture at Stanford University in 1957. Until 1979 she worked in Architecture, Landscape design, and surveying plant life and other environmental factors on potential construction sites with her husband, architect and landscape architect Daniel Osborne.

Mimi also managed Canessa Gallery in San Francisco's finance district and spent several years as manager and cook of the San Francisco Ecology Center Luncheon Café. During that time she also served on the Boards of several San Francisco community organizations.

Since 1980 she has been working as a freelance illustrator and botanical artist. Her botanical art has been shown in numerous group exhibits and a one person show at the Helen Crocker Russell Arboretum Library in the Golden Gate Park Botanical Garden and in various private galleries.

Mimi and her husband Daniel have three children and six grand children and are devoted San Francisco Bay swimmers out of the Dolphin Club at Aquatic Park. They live and garden at their home in North Beach in San Francisco and their weekend place in Sonoma.
