- Amatungula in Flower -- The Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew is a world famous centre for botanical and mycological knowledge. Kew has a gallery dedicated to the paintings of the remarkable Victorian artist, Marianne North, who had a great eye for botanical detail. She set out in 1871 on a painterly progress through flora. North's journey to South Africa was among her last, along with trips to Seychelles and Chile.
- Birds & Flowers -- Bex Parkin is an incredibly talented illustrator. Having spent many years based in London working in a range of artistic jobs, she now lives in rural Staffordshire. Her passion for print, pattern, and color was largely inspired by her work sourcing vintage and antique textiles for the fashion industry, a perspective visible in her artwork.
- Water Lilies -- Mabel Allington Royds (1874-1941) was born in Bedford, England. At age fifteen she won a scholarship to London's Royal Academy but opted to study at the Slade. She is famed for her colorful woodcuts of flowers, as well as far-off scenes. Her technique was indebted to the Japanese woodcut method.
- Star of the Garden -- Nel Whatmore is a fine artist, well known for her floral paintings, landscapes, and abstracts. Nel is a regular exhibitor at Chelsea Flower Show where her stand has won multiple awards including the Five Star Award. Her work can be seen in many forms all over the world. She seeks to constantly explore mediums and their ability to convey emotion, including poetry - she has six books of poetry published called the "Reason to Be" series.
- The Common -- Angela Harding has lived in Rutland, England since 1988. She first arrived as Artist in Residence at Uppingham School and has been inspired by the British countryside ever since. She has a love for familiar garden birds and makes quick scribbles when she sees them out in the wild, so that she can develop them into formal designs in her studio. The Common is an illustration of Minchinhampton common in Gloucestershire which resides on chalk land and is a refuge for orchids, blue butterflies, and meadow pipits. It is a wonderful piece of the natural world in a busy commuter belt.
