GRIGGS, Sharon

I am a Scottish artist who has attended various botanical art courses at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh and also just graduated with a First class honours degree in Biological Science (Human Health) at Heriot Watt University. My love of nature, and detail has drawn me to create art, working in oil based pencil, that allows layers of glossy detail and vibrant colour. I want to encourage the viewer to look closely, to appreciate plants and their vital place in our world as food and medicine, their essential role in the environment, aesthetic and healing properties: psychological and biological . I have exhibited and sold pieces of original art across the country for several years now and am very proud to have collectors of my work.
