|Wonderful North Light Studio|
One of the highlights of our trip was a visit to Ann Swan's studio. What a lovely and gracious host - she really outdid herself by preparing such a fabulous lunch for us. Ann works mainly in graphite and colored pencil in a very contemporary style. She exhibits world wide including the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew and the Hunt Institute's Exhibition in Pittsburgh USA. Ann is a regular exhibitor with the Society of Botanical Artists and until recently exhibited annually at the Chelsea and Hampton Court Flower Shows. She is also a member of the RHS Picture Committee. Her work is represented in the prestigious Shirley Sherwood Collection and features in many private collections around the world.
