I’m a Wildlife Artist living in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire on the edge of the Peak District.

I hope you enjoy my shop which includes: greetings cards, hand signed prints, traditional key rings, gift packs & suncatchers, with coasters, mugs and more to follow soon.

Passion for nature & drawing

I was born in Leeds and had a passion for nature and drawing from an early age. I spent my school holidays researching wildlife and drawing my German Shepherd, Torrel. When I moved to Holmfirth I became involved with wildlife conservation. I  worked with the badger conservation group and became a licenced Bat Worker for Natural England. I have spent many hours doing surveys and rehabilitation work. 

I decided to combine my interests and become a full time Wildlife Artist. I work in pencil, both graphite and colour and have a passion for detail. I became an artist for the Derwent Pencil Company in Cumbria, winning a global competition and my entry (a fox) was put onto one of their pencil tins. This led me to doing workshops and demonstrations at their pencil museum in Keswick. I have also done many workshops for art groups and schools. 

I also enjoy writing poetry and taking photographs while I am out walking my beautiful Border Collie Miss Poppy.
