Anne McKenzie Botanic Calligraphic Art




Inspired by love and appreciation for Kew Gardens and lessons learnt from Japanese calligraphy Anne McKenzie has painted a series of banners directly from life at Kew.  The project is an ongoing exploration which aims to combine some of the observational truth of botanic art with the immediacy and emotional resonance of Shodo.
