Sullivan’s Inner Wild Child

British artist Katy Sullivan’s love affair with nature started early. Born in Maracaibo, Venezuela, she spent her early years roaming the jungle and swimming in rivers to the sound of howler monkeys. She moved to England at age five where her passionate curiosity for the exquisite minutiae of the natural world extended into a keen interest in the human body. This in turn led to a medical career. She worked as a GP until the birth of a second daughter pulled her back into creating art again.
