Heidi Venamore

Botanical Art

Heidi Venamore is a botanical artist who works in watercolour and graphite.  Her work is technical and detailed, with a focus on accuracy alongside the natural beauty of the plant form.  

She portrays the vibrance and cleverness of nature through authentic portraits of plants and flowers.

Heidi is inspired by the work of the great botanical painters and plant collectors of history whose work has allowed us to understand plants more deeply.

She is a painting member of the Chelsea Physic Garden Florilegium Society, an Associate Member of the Society of Botanical Artists and a Fellow of the Linnean Society.
