If I controlled nature, I’d have the flowers in my garden blooming all year round. Realising that this is an impossible dream, I sought an alternative method of enjoying my botanic interest and enrolled in Lauren Black’s botanical art beginners course in 2009.

Lauren’s classes have taught me how to replicate, with accuracy, the intricacies of plants through watercolour to share and enjoy all year round.

In 2014 I teamed-up with a number of Lauren’s former students and my dream to portray nature’s beauty through botanical illustration is now a reality.
