All of my professional life has been animal-based; from Veterinary Practice to lecturing in anatomy and physiology at an Agricultural College. This work left me with a sound knowledge of animal structure and movement.
Handling and training a HUGE variety of creatures led me to working in the film and TV industry during the long teaching vacations.
I never had a working day that I didn’t look forward to.
Both my Mother and Grandfather were talented artists and it was a natural progression to combine my creative background with my animal work. After guidance with the wonderfully inspirational James Ort at his Phoenix Studio, he offered the perfect environment to work in.
I now work mainly from a studio at home in a tiny Buckinghamshire village with my husband Tim, our dog, chickens and a small flock of rare breed sheep.
