I have always worked in the design world, in corporate identity, for Conran Design Group and freelance styling for magazines. I went back to college in 1999 and re-trained as Garden Designer which I continue to do. I have recently completed a Foundation course in Fine Art. I have lived in Painswick for ten years in four different houses. I like to draw & paint, grow fruit and vegetables, make things, up-cycle furniture, cook, walk with my dog and practice Iyengar yoga. I love travelling & in the past year I have spent time in Barcelona, Amsterdam & one month in Old Rajpur in the foothills of the Himalayas. I live with my two large sons when they are home from University.
