Last night Shirley Sherwood announced that the Shirley Sherwood Collection of Botanical Art now has a website. The URL is http://shirleysherwood.com - which I'm sure all fans of botanical art will want to bookmark

I for one am very pleased to see it is now public even if there are a few little bits still to be completed. I'm sure like my own website it's been a labour of love and will never ever be really finished!
