Janie Pirie SBA specialises in floral and botanical art using coloured pencils. Her meticulously drawn and striking compositions have immensely accurate detail and great depth and intensity of colour.

Janie has built up a substantial base of admirers and collectors and now sells her originals and limited edition prints nationally as well as locally. She was awarded her first RHS medal in June 2008 and has also been invited to exhibit at the Hunt Institute in the USA. In 2009 she won an RHS gold medal at BBC Gardener’s World Live and was also presented with a crystal vase for ‘Best Botanical Artist in Show 2009’.

Art Workshops & Courses These are held in her garden studio (situated on the Essex/Suffolk border, midway between Colchester and Ipswich) and at various external venues. They have become extremely popular and offer tuition in watercolour as well as her favoured coloured pencils. Accommodation is available if required.

During the coming year she has also been invited to run workshops at the Cambridge University Botanic Gardens and at the Colchester based Beth Chatto Gardens.
