Si Scott was commissioned by Ballantine’s Whisky to work on a multifaceted
brief for the Japanese arm of their latest campaign, marking the release of
a new line of single malt whiskies. Whilst Ballantine’s prides itself in its

Christine at Artist Partners tells us a bit about one of the newest artists on their books.
"As soon as I saw Naomi McCavitt's work I utterly adored it - A Botanical artist so gifted, who hand paints such beautiful images, she is primarily a Natural History illustrator but with an eye for interior design - Naomi's work is sensational, and although only on Artist Partners books very recently, we are getting some wonderful feedback! Her flora and fawna have a wonderful classic and vintage quality about them."
