Rui entered the master’s degree of Graphic Design at the University for the Creative Arts in Maidstone, Kent.  It was during this time her passion for botanical art started.

After a few years being freelance graphic designer in London, Rui’s interest in painting flowers and plants grows. She joined the diploma course at the Chelsea School of Botanical Art from 2016 - 2017 and graduated with distinction for her final project.

Rui has a particular interest in the English Roses, and she had grown 56 different varieties in her garden so far.
