"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened!"
ANIMAL ART - ORIGINALS
York Open Studios 2021
A WARM WELCOME...
As a child, Art and Drama were the only subjects that interested me and I dreamt of becoming an Actress. Back then I was a troubled and rebellious teenager and consequently I left school with no qualifications.
At 20 years old I had my first child and returned to education. After nine years I gained a degree in Marketing and later a HND in Graphic Design. I worked in the media industry for 15 years before my passion for creating art led me towards becoming a full-time professional artist.
A deep love of nature and a profound respect for animals is the key inspiration behind my art. By focusing predominately on the eyes, I aim to capture the personality and emotion of each animal as if bringing them to life on the canvas.
I live in the beautiful city of York with my husband, two teenage sons and Labrador. Our daughter is now married and lives in Cheshire with our two young grandsons.
