Toni Watts - Artist
Toni Watts - Artist I was born in Derby and now live in Lincolnshire with my husband and teenage daughters. I spent 21 years working as a doctor in the NHS before deciding on a change of career. Art was always my first love; resignation from my hospital post gave me the perfect opportunity to spend my time painting.

I have no formal art training; however, my work has won numerous awards including the Christopher Parsons award for Artistic Excellence and a coveted first prize in the ‘Wildlife Artist of the Year’ competition. I was the overall winner of the PAWS (Paint a Wildlife Subject) championship, being considered the best artist from the winners and finalists in the thirteen years of the competition.

 

Thanks to Toni Watts, the Lincolnshire artist for making a cash donation and a beautiful print of a barn owl, " Silent Flight ", this one again will be auctioned to raise funds for the sanctuary.
