Lizzie Sanders

Based in Edinburgh, Scotland, Lizzie Sanders is fortunate to live near the Royal Botanic Gardens, where she finds many of the natural specimens she renders in watercolor using a dry brush technique. Painting with great skill, she aims to produce strong contemporary portraits, celebrating the plant both artistically while maintaining its scientific accuracy. She has been involved in the field for fifteen years, and teaches around the world. The American Society of Botanical Artists honored her with the "Bouchier Award for Excellence in Botanical Art" and was accepted for inclusion in the Highgrove Florilegium, The Prince of Wales contemporary botanical art collection depicting the plants growing at Highgrove.
