A creative journal attesting to the profound personal impact of that first painting lesson beneath the big old mulberry tree ... stubby 3 year-old toes squelching into rotten purple fruit; pink tongue curled out with the effort of forging a wet, sticky, paint masterpiece. African storm clouds billowing just above.

Art + Science = Beautiful Botanical Drawings

I have always loved antique botanical drawings. They are so incredibly detailed and beautiful, and I love that they represent the unusual combination of science and art (two of my favourite subjects!). Placing a cluster of these drawings together on one wall is especially effective.
 If you too, have a 'soft spot' for this type of art, then head over to the Sudio Botanika website, or buy the book "Mr Marshal's Flower Book' by Royal Collection Publishers. You won't regret it!
