I paint in watercolour mainly and enjoy life drawing in pencil and charcoal. I love colour and the unpredictable flow of watercolour and paint landscape, figures and although not botanical I enjoy painting the more dramatic flowers in my own way.

Bette Hopkins
'Initially a botanical painter, I tired of white backgrounds and a lack of movement in my work. I introduced colourful backgrounds and eventually abandoned the rigidity of botanical flowers for a more abstract style, using rich colour with lashings of gold, silver and iridescent shades to make them 'sing'. The background often determines the subject I paint which can include landscapes or seascapes. I also make mosaics out of re-cycled crockery.'

Whilst most of my work is in watercolour I use a variety of mediums working From loose to more detailed and will attempt most subjects. My first love is the natural world and particularly the plant kingdom.
I teach weekly classes and hold regular workshops.

Anne Wormack
I have a passion for flowers and the natural world which I hope reflects in my artwork. I attempt to capture the essence of my subject in watercolour but I am also experimenting with pastels. I work from life, sketches and my own photographs. I often make a realistic study first and then paint an impression of my subject once I have the feel for it. I'm influenced by many artists including Matisse, William Morris, Hokusai and so on!
