Minnie Aurora Hedley is an illustrator and artist. Minnie was born in rural North Wales, and now lives in North London. She talks about her unique upbringing in the deep valleys of North Wales and relocation from the countryside to London. 

"The illustrations I will be contributing to Stories are based on the subject of animals at local agricultural shows in Wales. I have attended many of these shows, like the Royal Welsh Show, which exhibits the best of the countryside. As a pony mad child, I always wanted to be on the other side of the fence, to be a participator rather than a spectator. Drawing these is a way for me to indulge in that longing. I want these illustrations to be used to educate children and adults about the ways of countryside and how we can celebrate it."
