From a very early age Eleanor has shown a keen interest in both art and nature. Growing up in an artistic family with a talented grandfather, uncles, aunts and cousins, a brother who was a marine artist and a father who painted throughout his lifetime: it is hardly surprising that from the age of three Eleanor has hardly been apart from pencil and paper.
Born in Surrey, England, Eleanor studied at Guildford College of Art where she did a three year course in fabric design. Although she did not continue in this line of art it's influence can be clearly seen in all her paintings where her keen sense of design is combined with her love of nature.
After moving to Devonshire in 1970 Eleanor was so inspired by the beauty and rich variety of it's countryside that she combined her two great interests and started her professional career as a wildlife artist. Since then her work has become internationally known for it's exquisite detail.
Initially specialising in wildflowers her work was soon snapped up be greetings card companies and also reproduced as prints, calendars and for book illustrations: her work is in collections and museums worldwide.
