Welcome to my website - I hope you enjoy your visit.

 

For those of you who are botanical artists, there is going to be a worldwide day of botanical art held on May 18th 2018. Many different countries will be involved in holding exhibitions of artworks of their native plants and the UK contribution will be based at the Ruskin Library in Lancaster. More information about the UK exhibition is here. If you are interested submitting a painting for the juried exhibition see the call for entries here.

Some UK artists are blogging about the plants they have painted or are painting here.


More information on the other countries involved can be seen here on the website for the project, hosted by the American Society of Botanical Artists.

 

I work with Tees Valley Wildlife Trust on our local native plants here in the UK. You can see some of our work at the Cleveland Coast Wildflowers website here and recent project Woodland Diaries here.



 

Hello to everyone I met at the American Society of Botanical Artists Conference in San Francisco, California. It was great fun demonstrating my watercolour technique, teaching a one-day course about shadow colours, and giving a talk on making photographic notes for botanical art. It's such a friendly conference, with so many botanical artists of all levels to talk to or see their work.

A book of botanical art celebrating 20 years of the Chelsea Physic Garden Florilegium Society 'Botanical Illustration from Chelsea Physic Garden' has been published by the Antique Collectors' Club. My painting of Allium subhirsutum is included.


 

I'm now on Facebook here posting about botanical art very occasionally and on Twitter as @botanicalmartin chatting about plants.

Do say hello.....
