Born in London on 28th July 1866, Beatrix Potter never went to school but was taught at home by governesses. She once wrote that although she and her brother were born in London, their descent, interest and joy were all in the North country. Here the happiest days of her life were spent and when she died on 22nd December 1943, as the wife of William Heelis, Hill Top Farmhouse with all the treasures she had so lovingly placed in it over the years was left to the National Trust.

All through her childhood Beatrix Potter must have spent much of her time drawing and painting. In due course Miss Hammond her first governess realised that she had an exceptional gift in this direction and in November 1878 she had her first drawing lesson from a Miss Cameron, and these lessons continued until she was nearly seventeen. She then attended a course of lessons in oil painting and although Beatrix Potter learnt figure drawing at these lessons, her one regret in later life was that she had never seriously studied human anatomy.
