A few years ago Alison felt compelled to take up her paintbrush and, being made about plants and horticulture, found herself drawn to painting what was growing in her garden.
She is particularly interested in the scientific approach to portraying plants, where one attempts to show accurately the subject and its vital parts, often with the aid of a magnifying glass, or even a microscope.
