Join exhibition curator Annemarie Bilclough as she takes us behind the scenes of the Beatrix Potter: Drawn to Nature Exhibition. This family friendly exhibition, staged in collaboration with the National Trust, takes visitors on a journey to discover Potter's life as a scientist and conservationist and explores the places and animals that inspired her most beloved characters.

Annemarie Biclough is the Frederick Warne Curator of Illustration at the V&A. She has worked at the V&A for more than 20 years on a variety of projects. She was co-curator of the 2017 exhibition Winnie-the-Pooh: Exploring a Classic; and curated the Beatrix Potter: Drawn to Nature exhibition in partnership with the National Trust.
