After I sold my shop in 2001, for pleasure I studied horticulture with the RHS, this started an interest for me in Botanical painting, and as I was already an accomplished water colour artist the transition to Botanical painting has not been as torturous as I had expected.
By combining my jewellery and botanical painting skills in 2006 I had 2 pieces of Jewellery and 2 paintings accepted for the Society of Botanical Artists exhibition in Westminster Hall London. The following year I had 3 paintings and 2 pieces of jewellery accepted. In 2008 I had 5 pieces of jewellery accepted for the exhibition and I became an Assoc SBA.
In 2009 I had a further 5 pieces of jewellery accepted and I am now a full member of the Society of Botanical Artists. In the years since becoming a member I regularly exhibit my botanical jewellery and paintings at the societies annual exhibition.
It was then suggested by a colleague that I teach botanical painting which I now do and I currently teach a regular class at Mycenae House in Blackheath. I have also taught on a one off basis at Great Comp Gardens in Kent. If a group or individual would be interested in having tuition either on a regular or one off basis then please get in touch.
Here are some examples of my paintings.
