I am both shocked & totally overwhelmed to learn that I have been selected as one of the finalists in the Women of the Year Awards for 2017. I am in the Creative Woman of the Year category & the winner will be announced at a black tie event in Cheltenham on June 1st. I have my posh frock & my Jimmy Choos all dusted off ready to go although just being selected is already a huge achievement for me.
I will keep you all posted!
Graduating in design back in the early nineties I now combine my passion for creating art with my love for animals. I use my art to raise awareness & funds for animal conservation groups & charities across the globe. I am an invited Artist Partner to the Snow Leopard Trust & have worked with Animals Asia, Wildlife SOS & Free The Bears to name just a few.
