Hayley was born in Staffordshire and
from a young age all she ever wanted to be was a professional
artist. She graduated from The University of Gloucestershire in 2010
with a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art and embarked on her personal
journey towards artistic recognition, painting during the week and
finding inspiration at the weekend working in a gallery.
In her second year at university Hayley
had received a commission to paint a black Labrador and this had
started her on the path towards wildlife and other animal painting.
Her work was noticed in the gallery and she began to take on
commissions and frame and exhibit her work. More commissions came
in, the work began to sell, and Hayley began to forge a reputation,
first locally, then nationally.
