|A lifelong love of gardening and painting, and the discovery of Redoute and Rory McEwen, convinced Alison to combine her passions and seek training in botanical illustration. A course with botanical artist Dianne Sutherland was followed by a diploma in botanical illustration at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE), obtained in 2018.
She is a member of SSBA, SFIB and ABBA.Artist statement:
“My goal is to represent flowers and plants in their most beautiful and honest form –
light and delicate with elegant but simple compositions. I love the freshness and the
transparency of watercolor which is my favorite medium, but I also like to work in
coloured pencil, ink and graphite. “
