Billy’s work is held at Kew Botanic gardens, the Hunt Institute USA and in the Shirley Sherwood collection; her work is also held in many private collectors worldwide.
"These are my fabulous synthetic fine pointed brushes, I rely on these brushes for all my work. They have wonderful points and a softness that still retains a lovely spring. They perform beautifully and are affordable. A wonderful and reliable alternative to sable. The size 6 is great for big washes but still has a point for the smaller areas. The size 4 is a good all-rounder for both detail and medium size cover, it is essential! The 2 is perfect for painting lots of detail, the point is fine and yet it holds enough paint. The brand new size 1 is for the finest detail. As you get more experienced, you will love this brush!"
