Janie with good friend Alan Titchmarsh
at BBC Gardener's World Live.
Growing up in the sleepy little village of Newton Longville, Buckinghamshire, Janie was painting pictures of the family garden at the tender age of four. Plants and vegetables as subjects have remained her passion and have led her to becoming a renowned botanical artist.
After leaving school she studied at the Northampton School of Art before life took her to London and then many places outside of the UK, notably Greece, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
