1. Dorothy DePaolo
Art has always been Dorothy's passion. She marvels in the design, attention to detail and variety of media and techniques used in botanical illustration. She wants to develop her techniques in design and depth, and though her current media is colored pencil she’s interested in learning watercolor, graphite and pen and ink techniques. It is hard to find a more suitable program than the Botanical Art and Illustration Certificate program at Denver Botanic Gardens.
2. Laurence Martin-Pierson
In addition to her professional life, Laurence is also trained in illumination, calligraphy and iconography. She has been painting Byzantine-style icons for 18 years and uses egg tempera as her primary media, which she combines with the traditional gilding techniques. She prefers attentive observation and faithful reproduction, which makes botanical illustration a perfect pathway to further develop her artistic skills.
