Beatrix Potter

Beatrix Potter is best known for her beautifully illustrated books with much loved characters such as Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny, Jemima Puddle-Duck, Tom Kitten and Mrs Tiggy-Winkle.
Her career as a children's illustrator and storyteller began when The Tale of Peter Rabbit was published by Frederick Warne and Co. in 1902. The public loved it as soon as it appeared and Beatrix went on to produce on average two books a year until 1910. In the early years of publishing her editor was Norman Warne and they fell in love and became engaged in 1905. Unfortunately the marriage never took place as Norman died suddenly. The money she earned from her "little books", as she called them, gave her financial independence and she began to purchase property in her beloved Lake District. In 1913 she married William Heelis, a Lakeland solicitor, and made Sawrey her permanent home. Writing and painting began to take second place to farming, sheep-breeding and buying stretches of the beautiful Lakeland countryside to ensure their conservation. When she died in 1943 she left over 4,000 acres of land and fifteen farms to the nation.
