Esther is a British painter and printmaker. She studied at the University of Wales before being accepted into the Royal College of Art, London.
A travel scholarship to study large carnivores in Slovakia ignited a passion for travel, drawing, painting and observing creatures in their natural environment. A 3 month placement on Aride Island in the Seychelles was an important time of learning and understanding. Living and working alongside biologists in the field, observing the behaviour of many bird species including the Seychelles Magpie Robin, a thrush size bird threatened with extinction and in 2005 cited on the red data list.
Esther has been involved in projects within the UK and Worldwide, working alongside organisations such as Birdlife International and BTO. Currently living and working in the South Peak District where she combines a studio and observational outdoor practice.
