Rosemary Dodgson, has a lifetime’s interest in plants, working as a horticulturalist: managing parks in north east London, teaching at Capel Manor College, Enfield and now specialising in botanical art.
I have completed a range of commercial assignments for seedhouses, research bodies and other agricultural organisations.
Whether it is a complex lifecycle or detailed plant structures, I can do what the camera lens cannot.
Plants are my passion, they can say so much. Whether to brighten your own room or a gift to say something special, I can design a perfect solution.
My styles range from detailed botanical illustration to modernist 'pop art'; from detailed pencil and watercolour to vibrant acrylics.
I took up chalk pastels to re-create an image of my grandmother. Since then I have found the medium is ideal for people, and particularly to create portraits of loved pets.
I am happy to take commissions from photographs of your pet.
