Roger Harris
I have drawn for as long as I can remember but after leaving school and starting work it became very sporadic and I didn't pick up a pencil for about 8 years.
It is only recently that I returned to coloured pencil drawing.
I now work from home in Devon and not only find more time at weekends to indulge myself in drawing, which I find very therapeutic and relaxing, but I also
find the southwest very inspiring as well.

Ann Holden
Ann Holden has been drawing animals since she was a teenager, when drawing horses was the closest she could get to owning her own pony. When she grew up, she went to Cambridge University to read Veterinary Medicine. She qualified as a vet in 1980 and went into small animal practice in the north west of England.
In 1989 she opened her own surgery until 2000. During this period, there were limited opportunities for Ann to develop her artistic skills but she joined a local watercolour class and the North West Calligraphers’ Association (NWCA).
In 2000, ill health forced Ann to sell the business so she formed Artisann and started to offer pet portraits. While establishing ArtisAnn, Ann continues to be involved in local art classes and is now treasurer of the NWCA.

Paul Hopkinson
I've had an interest in drawing and painting since the age of five. My Uncle Peter Hopkinson took me out many time painting the landscapes around Derbyshire.
In 1987my family moved down to Devon to make a fresh start in life and being only 18 years old and unemployed I decided to tag along.
During this time I have been doing commissioned paintings of dogs, cats, birds, children, well just about anything really! Both my son and my painting are my life.
I paint as a hobby artist enjoying the relaxation this lovely hobby brings. I do paint commissions for people but only charge a small fee to cover the material costs.
If I have a favourite thing to paint then I would choose animals as my first choice and portraits as my second.

Caroline Howlett
Animals have always been a huge part of my life, whether I was walking my dogs, riding or just spending time with them. This naturally led to an interest in their form and earthly beauty.
After leaving school I studied agriculture then took various jobs ranging from silver service waitressing to heavy horse showing, each job giving me ample opportunity to flex my drawing muscles. In 1998 I set up a pet nanny service, Petnanny, caring for all types of pet and this allowed me to meet a huge quantity of perfect subjects, so after selling my artwork for over 11 years I decided to take my artwork a little further.
