These paintings are copied from Marjorie Blamey's wonderful book, "The Illustrated Flora of Britain and Northern Europe" which covers over 2400 plants. A former dairy farmer without any formal training in either painting or botany, she has become the most successful botanical illustrator alive. Over the years she has built up an archive of more than 10,000 paintings of flowers from the Arctic Circle to the Mediterranean, which are used in publications worldwide. She has illustrated and written more than 36 books about flowers. Marjorie is 95 and lives with her husband in Cornwall.
