2022 ASBA Botanical Illustrator Award for Excellence in Scientific Botanical Art
Author of 'Natural History Illustration in Pen & Ink' Published by The Crowood Press
Sarah shares her passion, skills and natural history knowledge by teaching a variety of courses and day workshops in Hampshire and Dorset UK, as well as for other organisations at home and abroad.
She also provides online tuition via the Illustrating Natures Details Patreon Community, providing a variety of learning experiences within botanical and natural history art to suit all levels of experience and budgets.
Much of her tuition focuses on the development of drawing skills which she considers to be the foundation of all aspects of botanical and natural science illustration. The aim is always for the learner to develop their own style rather than copy what Sarah draws or paints.
Her courses, workshops and personal tuition seek to inspire, encourage and motivate artists of any level of experience.
Teaching approaches are carefully planned and structured to suit group learning experiences as well as individual needs, both in person and online.
Sarah is also qualified to teach in lifelong learning.
Course & Teaching Reviews
"A fantastic four day course with Sarah Morrish. Sarah was a superb tutor as always, coping with a class of students at all different levels of botanical and nature illustration. She provided a very full programme with a stunning range of teaching resources. Her knowledge of the natural world is inspiring and she extended the teaching to include subjects such as bat detecting and the use of a moth trap".
"Sarah is a conscientious and excellent teacher. She is an extremely skilled and professional artist who is able to effectively impart her knowledge to her students. I have attended many of her courses and found them to be both enjoyable and instructive. I highly recommend her courses".

"Sarah is an experienced and highly-respected artist. I have attended Sarah’s workshops and have been amazed at her level of knowledge, the amount of prep she must put in before each workshop and the support and guidance she gives to even the most apprehensive of students. Her enthusiasm is inspiring. I have attended many courses and workshops over the years, and would place those run by Sarah as amongst the best".
