A nature-loving young artist is using her talent to raise money for a cause close to her heart.
Animal artist Faye Smith, 20, has set herself the Drawing a Day Challenge for November.
And she hopes to raise money for Meltham Wildlife Rescue.
Faye, who lives on the family sheep farm in Holmfirth, will be out and about locally over the next month creating 30 drawings of landscapes and buildings, but most of all, animals.
She will have a collection box next to her as she draws and is also offering to draw people’s pets for a £5 donation.
She said: “ I have grown up on a farm and have a passion for animals and nature.
“I have got quite a lot myself, including snakes, some giant foot-long stick insects, terrapins, a dog and sheep.
“I’ve done a lot of drawings of dogs - and loads of sheep!
“I first heard about Meltham Wildlife Rescue when I was down at the vet’s. They raise all the money they need themselves and thought I would like to do something to help.”
Wildlife and animals play a big part in Faye’s life. When she isn’t drawing, she works as a part-time dog walker and is currently studying Natural Sciences with the Open University.
Volunteers at the Rescue rehabilitate injured and orphaned wildlife.
Over the last few months they have helped a range of wildlife, including many different birds, rabbits and other small animals before releasing them back into the wild. They are currently helping several hedgehogs with lungworm.
