Welcome to my blog, here you can find out about my work and online tuition. There's also more general information on painting, drawing and botanical art as well as a bit of science.
I've been a freelance artist and illustrator for most of my working life.... 30+ years painting professionally!I also hold a BSc in Biology specialising in floral morphology related to reproductive success in plants. I studied some IT (groan but handy stuff) and worked in education along the way before returning to painting full time. I started to paint botanicals around 2000 and completed my first bit of blogging back in January 2009, while I was a student on the on the Society of Botanical Artist's distance learning diploma course - it was intended as a personal record of my journey through the course which helped to motivate me at times when enthusiam was low and when there was virtually no communication between students. Writing always seems to add a bit of order so it works for me! I also wanted to see if I could find any others interested in botanical art.
