Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717), born Frankfurt, Germany. From an early age, Maria had a fascination with plants and insects.

Her exploration of the lifecycle of caterpillars, their transformation into butterflies and the plants they used to feed themselves became the basis for her first two books.
