Marianne Hazlewood Dip Bi

I am a botanical artist with a graphic design background which influences my composition. I like to highlight the natural structure of the plants and love pattern. I work using a few different botanical illustration techniques including watercolour, various pen and ink methods and screenprinting, 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 Book Prize for Botanical Illustration. I have been delighted to continue my relationship with the botanics, as I 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. I show annually at the Pittenweem Arts Festival in August, and I have shown in the VAS and SSA Open Exhibitions in the RSA Edinburgh Gallery.

I have had work published in “Scottish plant lore an illustrated flora” by Gregory Kenicer 2018 and in 2019 I was asked to contribute to the Botanical Artist the journal of the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA)
