Vincent Jeannerot is a well respected French Botanical Artist and tutor. He has a BA in Fine Arts attained at Lyon (France) and is a member of the Maison des Artistes, the French Society of Botanical Illustration and the French Society of Watercolour. His work has been exhibited at the Chelsea Flower Show and the L’art du jardin, Grand Palais, Paris and at many galleries in London & France. Vincent’s paintings have appeared as illustrations in several European gardening magazines and books such as Portraits de Fleurs, Plantes Aromatiques, Mes Saisons Gourmandes. Vincent has his own gallery in Old Lyon.
Vincent’s work is mostly in watercolour and he is known as a master in dry brushing.  He is attempting to express through his work the first emotions in contact with nature like the scent of a mushroom, the brightness of a wet oak leaf in the rain. Vincent as a tutor, has a kind and gentle touch.

Last year he ran workshops at Summer School in Winter with CSV (The calligraphy Society of Victoria) and Royal botanical garden in Melbourne. These classes sold out and were a huge hit, so much so Vincent is returning to Australia and NewZealand again. In fact this year his classes have been a major hit in Brazil & Russia and he is booked to teach in US later this year. We are extremely lucky to have a tutor of his caliber teaching Botanical Art coming to down under.
