Very nice program. I`m actually not a “botanical artist”, i`m a textile designer. I did my degree in printed textiles back in the 70s and have worked as a textile designer full time ever since, particularly with furnishing fabrics. I do however tend towards floral and botanical designs a lot of the time when i`m not doing my ethnic inspired collections. Kaffe started off doing fine art in Boston I think, but then ran away as I think he found the course too restrictive.
