A botanical artist from East Devon is looking forward to a busy summer.

Susan Thomson, from Topsham, will be showing her work at the Topsham Art Group Summer Exhibition at Topsham Primary School from July 31 to August 20.

After that she opens her studio for Devon Open Studios (September 5-20), then her work will be shown in The Art of Pollination, an exhibition by the Bath Society of Botanical Artists in Bath (September 10-29).

Susan trained as a graphic artist and worked in advertising before studying botanical drawing and watercolour painting at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.

“Having always been interested in plants, this was a wonderful opportunity to learn about plants and paint wonderful specimens straight from the botanic gardens,” says Susan.
