A  background in art and gardening led Sharon to a Diploma in Botanical Illustration from the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh, where she now teaches the continuing Botanical art class.  A plants woman through and through helps enormously in understanding the accuracy required in recording botanical subjects in a life like manner and Sharon has recently completed a commision for Curtis Botanical Magazine to add to the list of work she now has in several private collections.  Creating a fun yet encouraging environment means that space in Sharon's private classes are in high demand and students have gone on to achieve very high standards.
