Sarah shares her passion, skills and natural history knowledge by teaching a variety of courses and day workshops in her home county of Hampshire; and also in Dorset at the Dorset Wildlife Trust's Kingcombe Centre. She has also taught at Nature in Art, Gloucestershire, Kew Gardens and the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh. She is delighted that she can now bring her courses to an online audience, giving them the chance to make a connection to the natural world through art.
Her experience of working in education for many years and also ecology and conservation, combine in a dynamic way with her present career as an artist and tutor.
Sarah holds the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh Certificate in Botanical Illustration (Distinction) and she is also qualified to teach in lifelong learning. She is also a member of the Chelsea Physic Garden Florilegium Society, a Fellow of the Linnean Society ,an exhibiting member of the American Society of Botanical Artists and a member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators. She has been awarded a Certificate of Botanical Merit by the SBA (Society of Botanical Artists) and a Silver Medal by the RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) in 2016.
In all of her courses there is not only the opportunity to learn new skills and techniques in drawing and painting, but also the chance to really get to know your subject and enhance your learning through using additional resources. Even through online tuition she is hoping to guide you through using some of these resources, such as microscopes, ID charts and other tools that will help you on your journey of portraying elements of the natural world.
