About the Author

About Becky Amelia

Becky Amelia is an illustrator inspired by all things botanical. She has enjoyed painting and drawing for as long as she can remember, but art took a backseat while she studied Mathematics at university and then worked in a job she loved after graduating. In 2018, her passion for painting was rekindled and Becky started to paint every single day, teaching herself new techniques and refining her style over time. She set up an Instagram account (@beckyamelia_art) to share her painting journey with an amazing community of fellow illustrators and artists across the world. Inspired by nature in all its forms, her favourite subjects to paint are flowers, leaves, fruits and vegetables. 

While pregnant with her son, Becky set up her website and her Etsy shop @ByBeckyAmelia, and started designing botanical prints and illustrated stationery, which she now sells worldwide. Becky lives in Cornwall, UK and spends her days happily juggling motherhood, painting and running her art business. This is her first book.
