About the Book
A pictorial and descriptive journey through the life of Elisabeth Sherras Clark.
Elisabeth paints flowers as botanical illustration, flower portraits and silk paintings using the subjects from her own cottage garden in Surrey and Australia. Her knowledge of flowers, enjoyment of colour and freedom of style is evident in the subjects she chooses - a large banana flower with the bloom on it's petals, the spiky form of a huge Peruvian cactus, flamboyant peonies and old fashioned roses.
Her book charts her life from painting as teenager, through art school and her travels in the rainforests. There are abundant reproductions of much of her work along with descriptive text.
