Sue studied Modern Languages but extensive travel allowed her to pursue her passion for plants and paint the native flora of many parts of the world. She exhibited at the National Botanic Gardens in Zimbabwe and painted botanical issue stamps for the Pitcairn Islands. Since returning to the UK, she has joined the SBA, won several awards and had her work purchased for collections. Her recent shared "Black and White" exhibition at Kew was a treat.


Retirement from teaching Art provided Chris with the chance to explore her love of textiles. She experiments and develops new techniques using hand and machine stitching. As the owner of a beautiful garden, close observation of plant structure has always been a passion but she also uses the wider perspective of her local landscape.
Chris uses drawing initially, but allows the unique colours and textures found in fabrics and threads to tell the story.


Linda's interest in plants began with childhood walks on the South Downs. After a career in Chemistry she set about studying Art, later specialising in flower painting. Having worked initially in watercolour, she is now enjoying experimentation with coloured pencil. Geometrical patterns, unusual shapes, cones, seeds, nuts and fruits are her preferred subjects. Her commitment to the subject has brought its reward as she was made an SBA member in 2015.


Susan is one of the foremost coloured pencil artists in the world and has won multiple awards. Her richly coloured botanical works are made even more arresting by her unique compositional skill. She is a Vice-President of the SBA, a member of the SFP and has work in private collections worldwide.
We are always delighted to show her work at Florum, where she now has an enthusiastic following.
