ESBA artists are all graduates of the internationally respected Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh Diploma course in Botanical Illustration.  Many of the artists have exhibited paintings nationally and internationally, won awards and had work selected for publication, such as the recent ‘Scottish Plant Lore’ by Greg Kenicer published by RBGE.  Not all graduates come from an arts background.  Many have had careers as teachers, architects, physiotherapists, social workers, botanists and film makers.  Their backgrounds are as diverse as the plants they paint, but they have one thing in common, a passion to paint and express the complex beauty of plants.
