Biddy Lee (short for Bridget) was born in Salisbury but grew up in Ealing. She is happiest when she's drawing and painting, so it is no surprise that is how she makes her living. She studied at Richmond-upon-Thames College before working for a graphics firm in the Barbican until she had her first son. Since then she has worked as a tutor for Adult Learning in Buckinghamshire for the last twenty years. She has recently retired which gives her time to concentrate on her freelance work, the job she really enjoys. Animals and portraits are her favourite subjects, but drawing the mice for William Whiptail gave her a lot of pleasure. As she soon plans to move to Devon, she expects her paintings and drawings will soon include the seaside too.
