Botanical Art by Charlotte Long

I am a botanic artist working in the UK.

In my paintings I aim to portray not only the visual qualities of the plant but also it's character and essence.

I have always loved drawing, painting and art - to live without them would be, for me, akin to losing a limb. As an architect by profession I have spent most of my life creating images at significantly reduced scale than reality, botanic art has introduced me to the equally wonderful world of creating images at life-size and larger.

In 2013 I decided to further my interest in botanical art by joining the Certificate in Botanical Illustration course at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh and then progressed onto their attended Diploma course graduating with distinction in both 2014 and 2016 respectively.
