Anne-Marie Evans welcomes beginners to experienced artists. Her class covers her unique six-step method for producing a botanically correct and beautiful portrait of a floral subject in watercolor. Anne-Marie Evans is one of the most prominent botanical art teachers in the world. She is in a large way, responsible for the renaissance of botanical art in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and has taught in many countries.
Anne-Marie was responsible for the suggestion and follow-up of the florilegium of the Prince Charles’s Highgrove Estate and whose pages include paintings by several of her students.
