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 working in London, Yorkshire and Gloucestershire, and I have also recently completed a Foundation course in Fine Art. I have lived in Painswick for nine years in four different houses. I like to grow fruit and vegetables, make things, cook, walk with my dog and practice Iyengar yoga. I love to travel and have recently spent time in Paris, California and Kerala. I live with my two large sons when they are not at University or travelling.
