botanicalannie contemporary botanical art by Annie Patterson
Original botanical paintings in watercolour on paper and vellum.
Subjects range from tulips to cabbages and each painting is unique and painted from a 'real' plant and can take many hours/weeks of work.
If you are interested in a botanicl painting or commissioning a plant portrait, please contact me using the form on the contact page and I will send a list of available work.
After a long career in design for a very diverse range of clients, Annie changed direction and gained a Diploma in Botanical Illustration from the English Gardening School at the Chelsea Physic Garden, London in 2002.
Exhibitions followed in the US, Australia, UK and Europe and she contributes to Florilegia and Public and private collections. These include the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, the Highgrove Florilegium, the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew and the Sydney Florilegium, Chateau de Villandry and recently the Shirley Sherwood Collection. She has recently been awarded the Diane Bouchier Award for excellence in botanical art.
Now located in France, she continues to grow and collect unusual and interesting plants to paint, combining drawing and painting skills. Paintings are in watercolour, on vellum and paper with some in gouache and oils.
