Welcome to our new Botanical Tutor

We are pleased to announce that Sandrine Maugy has joined out team of course tutors and is taking immediate responsibility for new students joining our Botanical Illustration 2 course. Existing students on that programme will continue in the care of Jo Konopelko.

Sandrine is French and speaks fluent English having lived and worked in the UK since 1994. She is a Member of the Society of Botanical Artists and a Member of the Society of Floral Painters. Her work, which is of a consistently high standard, has won many awards including a Silver Medal from the Royal Horticultural Society.

Her career as a Botanical Artist started after she successfully completed a Botanical Illustration course with the London Art College in 2001 gaining a Distinction. She holds now teaching qualifications and regularly holds classes as well as acting as Tutor on the Society of Botanical Artist’s distance learning Diploma course.

Sandrine explains that her work is inspired by Nature, colour and light and she is regular contributor to the Artists & Illustrators magazine including their “Ask the Experts” feature. More examples of her work can be seen in the magazine and on her web site www.sandrinemaugy.co.uk

We are very happy that Sandrine, having started her very successful career with one of our courses, is now coming back to help new students benefit from her experience and expertise.
