Christina is an illustrator and internationally renowned botanical artist. When not involved with commissions, she travels to study and paint foreign native flora, tutors courses in the UK and pursues her interests in conservation. Her work is exquisite, sure and highly professional. She can make the tiniest little brown twig or dead leaf an object of desire. We are fortunate to have her as our designer at Florum.



Judi trained as a biochemist, later taking up botanical illustration and preparing line-drawings for the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew.She has been involved in many different publications for Kew, is a Fellow and former Chairman of Chelsea Physic Garden Florilegium Society and has work in private collections. She particularly loves the forms and colours of orchids and the three-dimensional, bold shapes of vegetables.


Tsuyako has exhibited with Florum as a student of Mayumi Hashi, but joins this year as an artist and newly elected member of the SBA. She grew up in Japan and learned to arrange and enjoy flowers, studying their shape and harmony. This sense of peace informs her work today and will, she hopes, communicate itself through her paintings. She is currently studying at The Chelsea School of Botanical Art.


Throughout Sarah's career in education and later in conservation, a desire to illustrate and record the natural world has been a constant. She works mostly in watercolour but enjoys graphite, acrylic on natural canvas and vellum. Her most recent project has been the illustration of elements of an ancient hedgerow in winter, hence the wonderful paw-like bud (left). Sarah's lovingly executed work is a treat for the naturalist.
