In August 2010 Alison joined twenty three other flower painters who had their first exhibition in the Edmund Gallery in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. Following its success the Iceni Botanical Artists was born in October the same year, with aims of encouraging and practising a high standard of all forms of botanical art through annual exhibitions by members.  
The Iceni Botanical Artists (IBA) is now engaged in a unique project to record and document the rarest of Norfolk’s Breckland wild flowers.  The collection of original paintings will be available for exhibitions at different venues and will be included in a Florilegium of wild Breckland Plants. More news nearer the time.
Meanwhile, the The Iceni Botanical Artists will be exhibiting again at the Edmund Gallery from 3rd – 8th August, 2012.
