Since she could hold a pencil in her hand, drawing was second nature to her. Animals and the natural world were her main inspirations for her art.<br><br>She studied at Bristol (UK) and completed her degree in Animation in 2010 from the University of West of England. She decided to take her destiny into her own hands and start working for herself as an artist.<br><br>Whilst working at Bristol Zoo, Arianne was one of the lucky artists chosen for Bristol Zoo's Wow Gorilla Project (Alfred Still Life), and her gorilla was extremely successful at the auction. Due to a change in life circumstances, Arianne now finds herself back packing in Australia.</p>
