'In my work I try to capture the essence of the animal through my love of painting intricately with miniature brushes. I am currently painting in egg tempera which was used mainly from the 1st centuries AD until the late Renaissance. It came back into favour in later years by artists such as the Pre-Raphaelites, William Blake, Marc Chagall and more recently American artist Andrew Wyeth.' - Faye Anderson
