Welcome to my website - I hope you enjoy your visit.
Starting on March 20th at the Hunt Institute, Pittsburgh, is an exhibition comparing historical botanical art with contemporary paintings. It includes my painting of a passion flower (right). 'Duets' will run until June 30th.
ArtPlantae have a description of the exhibition here.
I will be giving a Masterclass at The Chelsea School of Botanical Art, London in June: Reality, drama, and the need for wall appeal.
At Kew Gardens you can see 'Botanical Art in the 21st Century' with 'Overleaf' by Susan Ogilvy and 'Magnolias: Paintings by Barbara Oozeerally' until August. The latter is partly a selling exhibition; catalogue and price list are here.
Interesting piece from Coral Guest about botanical art here and there is also a fascinating account of how she was able to paint fine details on a Not paper surface.
Julia Trickey has created botanical illustrations for some British stamps - spring here; the other seasons will be available later in the year.
There's a free exhibition of botanical art at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge until 11th May.
If you are looking for a painting course on botanical art then Fiona Kane has made a directory of those available in the UK here. The links tab has further information, including web-based courses.
I've added a page on all the botanical art exhibitions I can find mentioned on the internet in the UK (see sidebar: 2014 Art Calendar) - if you are aware of any more then do let me know and I'll put the details up.
I'm now on Facebook here posting about botanical art and Twitter @botanicalmartin chatting on about plants.
Do say hello.....
