Lorna Minton - Botanical Artist

       My working schedule as a botanical artist is divided between private commissions, commercial design and marketing through my web site. For eight years I taught botanical painting at the Berkshire College of Agriculture, followed by courses at home and elsewhere for several years. I have now retired from teaching to have more time for my artwork. I am a member of the SAA (a society for all artists) and the Henley Art and Crafts Guild.

      Original watercolour paintings are held in private collections in America, Australia, Borneo, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Oman, South Africa, Sweden and the U.K. My designs have been used commercially for a wide range of products which includes greetings cards (published by the Medici Society and Polytint Cards Ltd among others); paintings for calendars, jigsaw puzzles, stationery and botanical illustrations for books, including a Kew monograph and the RHS Dictionary of Gardening.

      Since 1980 I have exhibited widely and to date have had twenty one solo exhibitions in various parts of Britain, Denmark, Malaysia and Australia.  At the Royal Horticultural Society shows in London I have been awarded a number of Silver-gilt medals and a Gold Medal for a collection of fifteen watercolours of Lathyrus, (Sweet Peas).
