Welcome to the Society of Botanical Artists website.

The Society of Botanical Artists became a registered charity in 1995. Its aims are to advance the education of the public and the appreciation of fine botanical art, to provide facilities for the exhibition of work by artists who practice the protection, appreciation, conservation and nurture of plants and habitats of plant life with special reference to endangered species.

Established in 1985, by Suzanne Lucas, The Society of Botanical Artists brings together artists of national and international repute. As the forerunner of all other botanical societies its mission is to follow the vision of its founder; to promote the skills of artists using a varied range of media who all excel in their ability to portray botanical forms in an accurate, unique or interesting way.

“To incorporate more recent techniques and styles in a broader interpretation; combining the scientific and representational, giving a rich and varied view of the wonderful world of plants.”

Suzanne Lucas, Founder President 1915 – 2008
