Both of these courses are run by Karolina Naimji - a passionate botanical painter and gardener. Fine arts, particularly oil painting, textile techniques and sculpting were Karolina’s original areas of interest. However, after having experienced the beauty of the English gardens, botanical watercolour portraits became my primary focus.

Karolina has had her paintings shown both in the UK and abroad. For several years she has been exhibiting at the exceptional botanical exhibition FLORUM in Sevenoaks. Her work is regularly displayed at the prestigious exhibition of the Society of Botanical Artists in London Westminster.
