My name is Maggie and I live in a village in Sussex. I have always loved both flowers and art so when I took early retirement I decided to study botanical art and combine the two! I was fortunate to be accepted on the Diploma Course with the Society of Botanical Artists and graduated in 2016. Since then I have thoroughly enjoyed painting all kinds of botanical items from Turks Head Squash to strawberries and Wedding Bouquets!
I am lucky that my home is in a beautiful floral area and my husband keeps an allotment so I am rarely short of materials!
I am so happy to have been able to raise some funds with my art and hope to continue to do so.

My name is Pearl and I’m 9 years old. I’ve always been really into art from a very early age. I was very lucky to have one to one lessons with a talented artist. She really helped me bring out the inner artist and helped me develop and learn new techniques. I love drawing and painting animals. I love using various mediums in my art and enjoy creating different textures and elements.
