Showell, Billy

Bio

I am predominantly a Botanical painter but do paint as a working illustrator too and teach world wide both in person and online. I have been successfully selling work over the last 23 years whilst bringing up my family.
I have had 3 solo sell out shows
I have been a professional member and am now President of the Society of Botanical artist and together with the Council we are modernising it and welcoming in new artists on a wider botanical remit.
I sell some of my images on greetings cards through Glebe Cottage as I like the fact the company specialise on greener production.
