Instructor: Margaret Saylor
Botanical artist Margaret Saylor's signature subjects are mushrooms and fungi. She forages for specimens in her native Berks County, Pennsylvania, and on her travels throughout the east coast of the United States. Margaret delights in finding the perfect subjects and then portraying their distinctive characteristics and unique beauty in watercolor, graphite, and egg tempera on vellum and gesso board.
For more than 10 years she has taught both in-person and online classes at many venues, including public gardens, art institutes, and botanical art societies. Margaret feels that observation, good drawing skills, and enthusiasm are key to any botanical work, and her goal is to convey these skills to her students in a fun and engaging manner. She was awarded a Certificate with Distinction in Botanical Art and Illustration from the New York Botanical Garden and exhibits her work widely.
