Congratulations to our talented Fellow member, Sarah Gardner, who had the opportunity to design the cover for de Jager Bulbs Spring Retail Catalogue, following her graduation from the Distance Learning Diploma Course last year.
Sarah personally cultivated the stunning Begonias featured in the catalogue right in her own garden, thanks to the tubers supplied by de Jager. Studying these plants up close allowed her to capture their breathtaking colours and textures.
As a newcomer to commercial botanical work, Sarah expresses her deep gratitude to the SBA and de Jager Bulbs for this incredible opportunity to gain valuable experience in the world of botanical art.
A special thanks to Sandra Wall Armitage PPSBA for providing invaluable mentorship during the design stage. Sandra has continued this tradition for the last ten years, guiding graduates selected for this prestigious commission.
