My two great loves have always been animals and art. I have pursued both throughout my life, going first to art school and later onto a career as a veterinary nurse. After raising my children in Sydney, Australia for 20 years I returned to England with my husband and the menagerie of pets I rescued as a nurse.

Since taking up my pencils again full time I have endeavoured to capture the individual personality of each pet I am asked to draw. I, like most of us think of our pets as family and I try to honour this, giving all of myself to each and every portrait. During the process I ultimately feel an attachment to the subject. I hope this bond is conveyed in the finished artwork.
