Im May of this year Angie Gray became a full member of the Society of Botanical Artists.
Living in Madeira since 2009 Angie has painted many of Madeiras beautiful flowers, and now has her own website where paintings and prints can be ordered.
Prints and paintings are also on sale in Saudade Cafe/Crafts just behind Sé Cathedral in Funchal.
A little information below from Angie, and link to her website.
Whilst living in Denmark I applied to “The Society of Botanical Artists” (SBA) for their “Distance Learning Diploma” and successfully completed the course in 2009 passing with distinction.
Over the years I have attended various short courses with tutors such as; Mariella Baldwin, Anne Marie Evans, Sandrine Maugy, Siriol Sherlock, Jenny Jowett, Fiona Strickland, Simon Williams, Rosie Sanders and Martin Allen. All of which have been really inspiring.
In 2009 I moved to Madeira with its abundant variety of plants and incredibly beautiful, natural world. This has made it possible for me to paint a vast number of vibrant and exotic plants, growing all over the island.
I was awarded Associate membership by The SBA in 2011.
In November 2011, I was invited by the famous “Reid’s Hotel” in Funchal to give a private presentation of my paintings to guests by invitation only.
My paintings have been exhibited in:
The SBA London exhibition 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014.
The Palmengarten Botanical Exhibition, Frankfurt, Germany in 2012 & 2014.
In May 2014 I was awarded full membership by The SBA
Paintings and prints of my work can be found hanging in Italy, Holland, Madeira, Scandinavia and the UK.
