What is Botanical Art? 

Throughout human history, people have been drawn to the beauty and elegance displayed in the planet's wide spectrum of plant life. Botanical art is the representation of this beauty in a manner that captures the essence of the plant. In botanical art, the plant is portrayed in a way that accurately depicts its image with reference to colour, scale, form and structure. Any stage of the plant form can be rendered and may include details of leaves, stem, roots, flowers, seeds, fruit, spores. etc. The two sides of botanical art blend to combine scientific accuracy with the beauty of artistic expression. From beginners to experienced artists, all are welcome to participate and explore in this expression of the beauty of our botanical world.
