Images of the flora of the Greek island of Crete
 Crete has the most wonderful and diverse flora and it is my aim to portray these wonderful flowers and plants in watercolour studies, drawn and painted from living specimens.  It was because of this amazing flora that Julia Jones Botanic Art was established, in order to bring this unique environment to the notice of people around the world.
 
I welcome commissions on any flower or plant related subject and also offer painting and drawing classes and courses for all skill levels from complete beginners onwards.
 
I also offer daily and weekly courses in drawing and watercolour painting on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Crete. Prices start at 100 euros per day per person, including all materials and a light lunch.  for more information please contact me at julia@jjbotanicart.com. tailored painting and photography holiday can also be arranged for groups comprising of two to six.students.
 
Julia is also the founder of the charitable association Flowers of Crete which works to encourage conservation and protect endangered and endemic wild flowers on the island. She also owns and runs Albion House, Crete, with her son Matthew.
