Summary

Inspirational and instructive, this mix of storytelling and beautiful images charts one woman's journey from amateur painter to botanical artist. Both a showcase for Mary Ann's sketchbooks and paintings, and a record of her achievements, Botanical Sketchbook is packed with advice for aspiring professionals. Along with firsthand accounts of the joys and challenges she faced along the way, it includes work from every assignment she undertook, from her first attempts at drawing a tulip to the triumphant paintings she made for her diploma portfolio. Margaret Stevens, President of the Society of Botanical Artists, adds her insightful comments on each piece.
