This year, the recipient of the 2023 Shirley Sherwood Award for Botanical Art is… Australian artist Beverly Allen.
Every year, Dr Shirley Sherwood presents an award of £10,000 and a dedicated space in the Shirley Sherwood Gallery to an artist who has greatly contributed to the field of contemporary botanical art.
Beverly is a spectacular artist with bold and confident compositions. Full of clarity, vivid colour and stunning detail, her paintings beautifully capture the splendour of the natural world and have earned her both the RHS – Royal Horticultural Society Gold Medal and the inaugural Gold Medal for Botanical Art by the New York Botanical Garden.
Congratulations go to Beverley.
