Foxglove and bumble bee

Sue Vize SBA

I have a passion for drawing and a preference for a pencil in my hand rather than a paintbrush, enjoying both graphite and coloured pencil. Within the traditions of botanical art, I prefer to work from live specimens enabling me to capture the minute detail of a fold of a petal or a shadow falling on a leaf. All the inspiration I need can be found in our natural surroundings; the garden and countryside providing a never ending source of subjects to draw all year round.

I am based in Nottingham and divide my time between producing artwork and running botanical illustration adult workshops around the country.
