Hayley Goodhead

Hayley is one of the most exciting artistic discoveries. Her witty and distinctive animal images are inspired by all things contemporary -well-known brands, the colours and patterns of the fashion world, and the modern love of the visual joke - and she brings these elements together in her uniquely appealing realist style and vibrant palette. Hayley was born in Staffordshire and from a young age, all she ever wanted to be was a professional artist. She graduated from The University of Gloucestershire in 2010 with a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art and embarked on her personal journey towards artistic recognition, painting during the week, and finding inspiration at the weekend working in a gallery. In her second year at university, Hayley had received a commission to paint a black Labrador and this had started her on the path toward wildlife and other animal painting.
