Stunning Botanical art and designs by Nicola Williams
For many years Nicola has worked freelance designing silverware for the prestigious Edinburgh Jewellers, Hamilton & Inches.
Most notable designs include The Six Nations Rugby ‘Triple Crown’ Salver, Ceremonial centrepiece and sticks in the Millenium Collection for Bute House, lidded quaichs and stone set candelabra for the Silver Trust Collection at 10 Downing Street.
She discovered botanical illustration via a study of calligraphy and an interest in illuminated manuscripts. In 2009 Nicola graduated with Distinction from the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh with a Diploma in Botanical Illustration.
Being a keen gardener Nicola grows the flowers she paints. Her garden is full of brightly coloured bold blooms - all to be a subject of a painting one day! Her first collection of paintings on Black Flowering Plants formed the basis of ‘FloralWorks’
Nicola is adding new paintings to her portfolio and continues to develop FloralWorks designs as well as tutoring a weekly Art Class in Marchmont and Botanical
Illustration at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.
