Olivia Chalmers


Born 1938

I studied at Harrow School of Art in the 50’s, where I did a foundation course then a further three years in fine art. I first discovered botanical art in 1993 when I saw an advertisement for classes at The Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew under the renowned artist Annie Farrar. I continued to have further classes with Annie and have also taken lessons with Coral Guest, Jenny Brazier and at the Chelsea Physic Garden with Pandora Sellers. I went to live in Grenada W.I. in 2000 where I taught art to the children in the Anglican School in Sauteurs and gave lessons in my home. I am an RHS medalist andhave sold from art galleries and societies all over the world.
