Your Dreams: I have two main ambitions in life the first is to help animals through my artwork, the second is to be able to draw wild animals in there natural environment.

 


I was born on the 25th July 1980 in Derbyshire, spending most of my childhood in a small village “Peak Dale” surrounded by animals and nature I would spend nearly every waking hour outside, and from that early age my love of animals began.

At School I started spending time drawing and painting encourage by family and my Head teacher the Primary School logo I drew took second place in a contest to represent the school.

Admittedly I didn’t find Secondary School so smooth my art teacher discouraged me from the pursuit of the arts, claiming I couldn’t draw and shouldn’t take GCSE art, because of this art became a hobby pushed to one side, I studied to become an Engineer and received a Merit for each GNVQ course, then becoming a Retail supervisor receiving a Merit in Retail operations, and eventually became a Blue belt in Kickboxing and an Instructor of Martial arts.

But I was never more happy than when I had a paintbrush or pencil in my hand (Or indeed behind my ear), it's my daily breath of fresh air, a place to escape, a place to really be myself.

So 13 Years ago encouraged once again by family and friends, and inspired by my new born Son, I dusted myself off and decided that I was going to pursue art once more and prove my art Teacher wrong, and since that point my art has gone from strength to strength.

I now reside in Buxton, Derbyshire it is a Beautiful and tranquil place, with endless wildlife to draw.

Even if I could go back in time and take art as a GCSE I wouldn’t, not being hemmed in with the way things should be ensures my artwork comes from my heart and not my head.  This is the only way I can show the love and admiration I have for the animal Kingdom, and in turn allow the viewer to feel this magic.  - Vicky Kenworthy
