These 30 pictures have been painted over a period of about 6 years. Bridget acknowledges the kindness of the many growers, both public and private who have allowed her to select from their trees.

Bridget has painted botanical illustrations for over 18 years. Her work combines scientific accuracy with the beauty of the natural world, from garden favourites to obscure hothouse specimens and local hedgerow finds. Bridget has exhibited work in Cambridge, Essex, Durham, London and Yorkshire and has gained 2 Gold Medals from the RHS who have also purchased several pieces for their historic collection. Illustrated publications include 'The Northern Pomona' and she runs courses in Botanical Illustration.

All works for sale.
