The winner of the Cuan Wildlife Rescue Artist of the Year is Hannah Cumber with her stunning Fox picture, completed in 2019.

Hannah said:

“My inspiration comes from my love and respect for wildlife in all its forms. "Fox" was completed using coloured pencils. I wanted to capture his expression and the details in his eye. "Fox" was my first wildlife.”
