Living in the beautiful countryside that we do, I am never at a loss for inspiration. My love of nature, animals and all things muddy extend to my working life, as a veterinary nurse, as well as my artistic life. I love to make field sketches when out and about, or snap a photo of a favourite patient at work, be that a canine companion or injured wildlife sent to us for treating. From these inspirations, I paint, print or illustrate what I see, putting their essence and character into the picture. After completing a foundation art degree at the University of Creative Arts, I went on to achieve my Bsc hons degree in veterinary nursing. Since qualifying in 2018, my spare time when I'm not nursing is spent in my conservatory studio at my family home.
