Beautiful Botanicals
I run both Weekly Classes and Botanical Workshops.  My classes and workshops are aimed at students all levels – from absolute beginners to experienced artists. My objective is to inspire my students to experience the joy of producing a beautiful botanical painting. Although this will demand patience, an eye for detail, and the ability to draw a specimen accurately, my students often surprise themselves as they display latent talents which some believe they never possessed.

I run weekly classes in my studio at home near Raglan .  I will also be running workshops at a number of other venues including the National Museum of Wales, Cardiff and Slimbridge Wetlands Centre.

I also give talks on the history of botanical illustration and demonstrations to groups and societies.

If you have ever wondered what Botanical Illustration is all about, click here  to view a short video which tells you more.

More information and how to book weekly classes.

Classes are limited to a maximum of 10 students, refreshments are provided.

Weekly classes are of 2.5 hours duration, at a cost of £12 per session. 

Materials will be provided for absolute beginners to use on the day, other students are asked to bring their own!  If you would like a materials list, please contact me.
