Teacher Directory: Sarah Morrish


Sarah has a BSc Hons in Ecology and Conservation Biology and has worked as a consultant ecologist.  Her early career was in education where she specialised in curriculum development.  Her two career areas have led perfectly to her present occupation and she is also qualified to teach in Lifelong Learning.

Sarah shares her passion, skills and natural history knowledge by teaching a variety of courses and day workshops in Hampshire and Dorset UK, as well as for other organisations at home and abroad.

​She also provides online tuition with a focus on the development of drawing skills which she considers to be the foundation of all aspects of botanical and natural science illustration.

Her courses, workshops and personal tuition seek to inspire, encourage and motivate artists of any level of experience.  Teaching approaches are carefully planned and structured to suit group learning experiences as well as individual needs, both in person and online.

​The aim is always for the learner to progressively develop their own style and to increase their knowledge and understanding of the natural world.


‘Sarah uses a very wide range of resources and clearly prepares in great detail before each course.  First rate teaching’
