 Meet Beatrix Potter!

   Born: July 28, 1866

   Died:  December 22, 1943 


All her English life, Hellen Beatrix Potter, loved to write stories and paint pictures. From a very young age, she painted her little friends, the mice, bunnies, birds, and those she found while out and exploring the woods. She grew up to be an author, artist, illustrator, and naturalist.

    She lived in London, England, with her mother, Hellen Beatrix Potter, her father, Rupert Potter, and brother, Walter Bertram Potter. She was educated by governesses and did not attend a school, which was the fashion for upper-middle-class Victorian children. Her governess, Annie Moore, would take her to London's Natural History Museum, where she could learn about the animals and plants and sketch to her heart's content.

    Her family vacationed in the summers in Perthshire, Scotland, where she wrote " Peter Rabbit," as a letter to her former governess' son, Noel, who was ill, and she wanted to cheer him up.  Her family later vacationed in England's Lake District, where she bought her beloved farm, "Hill Top," Sawrey, England.




If you LOVE Beatrix Potter and Peter Rabbit, you might like to join the Beatrix Potter Society. The Society seeks to educate the public in and promote research into the life and works of Beatrix Potter.
