Marianne Hazlewood Dip Bi

I am a botanical artist. My work combines two main skill sets; botanical illustration and graphic design which influences my composition. I like to highlight the natural structure of the plants. I work using a multitude of botanical illustration techniques including watercolour and various pen and ink methods and I specialise in capturing detail.

I graduated with a Diploma in Botanical Illustration from the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh in  2017. I was awarded a distinction and received the Eve Bennett award for Botanical Illustration.

I am currently creating new work to be displayed at the RHS in London in 2019 and am a tutor for the RBGE Online Certificate in Botanical Illustration.

My work has been featured in various group exhibitions with botanical societies; Flora Scotia BISCOT, SSBA and ESBA, has been published in “Scottish plant lore an illustrated flora” by Gregory Kenicer 2018 and I have just undertaken my first solo exhibition at the Pittenweem Arts Festival in August 2018.
