Marianne Hazlewood Dip Bi

I am a botanical artist. My work combines two main skill sets; botanical illustration and graphic design which influences my composition. I like to highlight the natural structure of plants. I work using a multitude of botanical illustration techniques including watercolour, various pen and ink methods and screenprinting, and I specialise in capturing detail.

I graduated with a Diploma in Botanical Illustration from the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh in  2017. I was awarded a distinction and received the Eve Bennett award for Botanical Illustration.

My work has been featured in various group exhibitions with botanical societies; Flora Scotia BISCOT, SSBA and ESBA, has been published in “Scottish plant lore an illustrated flora” by Gregory Kenicer 2018 and in the Botanical Artist the journal of the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA).

I also exhibit annually at the Pittenweem Arts Festival in Fife at the beginning of August each year, and I have exhibited in the VAS and SSA Open exhibitions.

I have a show at the Open Eye Gallery in Edinburgh in October 2020 and I am one of the tutors for the RBGE Online Certificate in Botanical Illustration.
