I’m Shevaun Doherty, Botanical Illustrator and Art Tutor.
My art is inspired by the natural world, using watercolour paints to capture light, colour and texture on paper and vellum in intricate detail. I love the quiet meditation that painting brings, immersing myself fully in nature.
Teaching is my other great passion. It allows me to share my enthusiasm for art and nature with others. I travel regularly to give workshops and enjoy helping students master watercolour techniques.
I run my own online botanical art course, ‘Botanical Elements’ where I encourage, mentor and guide artists on their botanical journey, working at their own pace.
Distance Learning is a great way to learn as it allows you to develop your own style. I studied botanical art whilst living in Egypt, so appreciate the benefits that distance learning offers.. I went on to become a full member of the Society of Botanical Artists, and now teach on the very course that I graduated from. If I can do it, anyone can!
Botanical Art has enriched my life. It’s where art, nature and passion meet.
