Beatrix Potter as a young woman.

Author, Illustrator, Rebel and Scientist

You may be familiar with her children’s books, but did you know that Beatrix Potter was a scientist as well?  There is way more to the life of Beatrix Potter than the movies have let on.  She was a child prodigy, a scientist, a gifted artist, and a wonderful story-teller.  She was a woman who faced many setbacks and disappointments, but was always able to use that pain as a driving force in her life to propel her forward.
