Growing through drawing
Since the end of 2015 I started to prepare myself for two exhibitions and one big project: Bloom Botanical and Floral Art Exhibition and "Rose" at Bobbio Castello in Fiore (Italy) and The Heritage Plants of Ireland, with the Irish Society of Botanical Artists and The Irish Garden Plant Society.
To now a bit more about I will send you to this link.
The 'Plandai Oidhreachta' project is continuing. This is a joint project between the Irish Society of Botanical Artists and the Irish Garden Plant Society. The artists are illustrating new garden plants which have been bred by Irish plantsmen and women. Members of the Irish Garden Plant Society are writing text to accompany the paintings and the whole will be published in a book which will be released in November this year. There will be an accompanying exhibition at the Botanic Gardens. The book is available to pre order on the website of the Irish Society of Botanical Artists.
