It was a pleasure to sit in the garden with Marianne Hazlewood and talk about her journey from graphic designer to botanical artist as well as the origins of the work she was showing in the Edinburgh Society of Botanical Artists exhibition in the John Hope Gateway.
Marianne mentioned a number of things you may like to follow up on:
- You can learn more about her work and purchase prints and cards on her website: www.mariannehazlewood.co.uk
- The RBGE Diploma in Botanical Illustration starts each year in September. there is also a RBGE Certificate in Botanical Illustration which is a great way to learn the fundamental techniques.
- Kathrine Tyrrell included a write up of the ESBA exhibition on her blog.
