  Shirley Sherwood Tuesday 30 July 2002  
Dr Shirley Sherwood has been described as the driving force behind a revival of interest in botanical art.

Her life-long love of plants began as a young girl exploring the orchids and azaleas of the North West Frontier province. Now 69, she still spends eight months of the year travelling, collecting artwork, visiting artists and organising exhibitions.
Shirley Sherwood joins Jenni to talk about her book A Passion For Flowers.
Shirley Sherwood, A Passion For Flowers: Contemporary Botanical Masterworks, published by Orion, ISBN: 0-304 35828 2
