More on Bryan Poole

Originally from New Zealand Bryan worked in the United Kingdom from the early 1980s.  His meticulous botanical etchings have been collected internationally by clients including The British Homeopathic Journal, The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), The Natural History Museum, and the McMillan Press Publications for the Royal Horticultural Society. 

His formal training as a botanical artist stems from his association with The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, where he worked under Dr Christopher Grey-Wilson, former editor of The Kew Magazine (which incorporated Curtis Botanical Magazine in 1984), and author of numerous books on botanical and horticultural subjects, in particular the Illustrated Flora of Britain & Northern Europe.
