Angela Petrini


After completing secondary education in Art she graduated in Law from the University of Turin. She started watercolour in 2004 and soon after focused on botanical drawing and painting. In 2010, she earned a Distinction from the SBA Distance Learning Diploma Course programme and joined Floraviva, the Italian Association of Botanical Artists, of which she is currently President. In 2014, she was awarded a Silver Gilt medal at the RHS Botanical Art Show, followed by a Gold medal in 2018 for a detailed study of rice. The history of plants, and their use by man has always fascinated this artist, which in turn has led to her current commission by the Italian National Trust to portray several Mediterranean species, both cultivated and wild to be found in the Kolymbethra Garden, an archeological site in the Valley of the Temples, Sicily.
