More about me and

My name is Ann (also known as Annie) and I work at from the home I share with my partner Stephen, and our two indoor cats.

Born in the North-East of England with ties to Scotland, New Zealand, and Hull - I'm neither a wildlife expert nor a green-fingered whiz, but a freelance artist with a natural garden and big love for the wildlife that visits it.

Like countless other people, I also have first-hand experience of just how comforting and healing nature can be

when living with autoimmune gremlins on top of unexpected limitations after an illness (in my case caused by sepsis plus heart failure).

This is my passion project, born from an enthusiasm for birds, bugs, beasts, vector drawings and web design. Launched without any expectations or targets, is simply a mashup of the things that matter to me, created out of enjoyment, and if anyone else happens to enjoy it too - bonus!
