A self-taught but gifted writer, artist, and botanist, she published her first book of poems in 1835 when she was 20, followed in 1836 by the beautifully-illustrated Romance of Nature in 1836. Her renderings of flowers in this book are delicate, lively, and lovely . She later married Charles Meredith of New South Wales and in 1939 they moved to Oyster Bay, Tasmania. Louisa Meredith produced many books on the flora and fauna of Tasmania and also worked there to have wildlife protection laws enacted. She is considered to be a State treasure by Tasmanians.
