Eden Project Florilegium Society member and Publicity Secretary, Laura Silburn,
achieved a Gold medal at the RHS London Orchid and Botanical Art Show in April
with her submission of six paintings of Hardy Geraniums. The judges agreed that
the standard was particularly high this year, but even so, only seven entrants
received the coveted Gold awards making Laura’s achievement all the more special
as this was her first attempt. Laura attends Mally Francis’s botanical art courses
at Heligan each week and it has taken her two years of constant work to produce
these six pictures. In addition to the excellence of her artwork, Laura was also
at pains to ensure that the presentation of her work was as perfect as possible as
this is a contributory factor taken into account by the judges. Many
congratulations to Laura from all at the EPFS.
