Very exciting few weeks for me in the botanical world-Not only did I gain my full membership for The Society of Botanical Artists, I was extremely honoured to be awarded the Margaret Granger memorial Silver bowl award.

Shape Pattern Structure is the title of this year's exhibition
For this year’s exhibition I found my inspiration from William Morris who pioneered textile designs with repeat floral patterns in the 18/1900’s.
William Morris is a great example of an artist/Designer that wanted to be drawn back to nature for inspiration.
I have used repeat patterns in my botanical paintings to replace the stylised floral patterns which were used by William Morris.
The exhibition is open all this week at Central Hall Westminster SW1H 9HN Saturday 23rd of April being the last day. Please do pop in and see an inspirational exhibition. For more information please visit www.soc-botanical-artists.org
