I am semi-retired from a very long career in Conservation in two national museums (Victoria and Albert Museum and British Museum) and for most of my working life my specialism has been in textiles. I have travelled extensively with my job especially in Asia and have a particular interest in Buddhism and Buddhist Art. So far I have made two journeys to Tibet. I am currently working on projects in Indian museums. I can't live without music, opera and ballet. I also love the countryside and the energy of London where I lived for many years. I am a quiet and gentle person and very easy going as a guest having stayed in all kinds of accommodation on many travels.
My life motto is gratitude.
