Pippa Hill grew up in the Dorset countryside surrounded by animals, including cows, sheep, her pony, dogs, chickens, hamsters and even tame pigeons. She was seven when she started collecting clay in the ploughed fields surrounding her home. She began sculpting the animals around her,  unfortunately these little pieces fell apart very quickly.

She remembers the shepherd skinning a lamb, and her mother teaching her how to skin a rabbit, she would collect skulls and dried stoats from the gamekeepers gibbet, these things sparked an interest in anatomy and comparative anatomy which informs her  work today.
