Mission Statement:

The society educates through exhibits and educational programs.


Chapter Logo Florida SocietyIn 2005, under the leadership of Olivia Marie Braida-Chiusano, the Florida Society of Botanical Artists was founded. Olivia created the botanical art certification program at the Ringling School of Art & Design where she taught. She encouraged her students to become members of American Society of Botanical Artists and helped them form their own group in Florida. In October of 2007 the group was granted chapter status in the ASBA. The FSBA is open to all artists and others interested in advancing the study and practice of botanical art.

FSBA draws at the Selby Botanical Garden September – December 2017!!

Our group is so thrilled to be a part of the current Orchid Show – Earth – Air – Fire – Water at The Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. Our members are drawing orchids at the Payne Mansion on Saturdays and Sundays during the show. The Selby supplies the orchid plants. We have had a lot of people coming by watching us draw, asking lots of questions. A fun event for all.
