Christine Battle

"Christine is an amazing plants person with a passion for trees. ....She is also a talented botanical artist, using her plantsmanship to express her passion in art."  Tony Kirkham, Head of the Arboretum and Horticultural Services, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

Christine is an established botanical illustrator based near Bath, England. She works primarily in watercolour on paper, and occasionally on vellum. 

She exhibited with the RHS for the first time in May 2010 and was awarded a Gold Medal for eight paintings illustrating New Trees, from the book of the same name by John Grimshaw and Ross Bayton.

Christine’s prints are all reproduced using the giclée process – from the French, meaning “to spray or squirt”, this printing style results in works of exceptional quality and almost indistinguishable from the original.

Both original works and limited edition giclée prints of Christine’s work are available to buy from this website.  Private commissions are undertaken on request - please email Julian Thomas for details.
