Marianne Hazlewood

Botanical Artist and illustrator

Greening the Grey

I love to bring the lush greens of the plant world onto walls and into homes, I feel it is so important to recognise the importance of plants to this planet’s wellbeing and also for our own mental health.

My work as a botanical artist and illustrator is a meld of the fascination that I feel for my plants, their structure and life cycle. This, combined with my approach to composition, honed during my years as a graphic and web designer, fuels my motivation and delight at being able to work with them. As a botanical artist I specialise in capturing detail.

I currently exhibit with the Open Eye Gallery in Edinburgh, where I recently recently had a show. I also show with the VAS and SSA Opens, at various botanical art societies and I am a graduate of the Diploma in Botanical Illustration from the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, I have an RHS gold medal, a BISCOT gold medal.

As an artist I am interested in connecting and working with botanists, horticulturalists, environmental scientists, botanical artists and illustrators and other artists, and in taking on commission work. I am also looking forward to the new projects on my ever growing to do list; some more ink work, watercolour and recently I have been delving into printmaking.
