In this guided tour, Sally Bunker showcases her paintings at the Hong Kong Club of Hong Kong's trees and flowers, of which she has painted numerous originals.

By way of introduction, Sally explains how she became a botanical artist and what it has involved, illustrated by her original sketch books.  She also discusses the rich trees and flowers diversity of Hong Kong and southern China.  


Sally Bunker hails from the United Kingdom and has resided in Hong Kong since 1979.  She was previously the Principal and owner of a pre-school in Hong Kong.   Sally always had a hobbyist interest in the artistic representation of flora and honed her skills with diplomas from the London School of Botanical Art and the UK Society of Botanical Artists.  She has been working with Hong Kong University School of Botanical Sciences for 7 years on the book Portraits of Trees of Hong Kong and Southern China, which combines being a fine-art book, a scientific textbook and an insight into the amazing biodiversity in Hong Kong.  In 2018, she was elected a Fellow of the Society of Botanical Artists.
