a resident of Epping, Essex, lived with her family next to a great and
wonderful forest that separated Epping from London. By age thirteen, a detached retina caused her
to pursue more simple activities than school and sport play, so she began to
closely study and draw the creatures, flora, and fauna around her.

and art training, successfully finishing well-researched and finely created
materials that caught the eye of publishers, and eventually Royal Doulton. These collector items continue to be much
sought after today.
