Born in Cambridgeshire to an English mother & Scottish father. This is very significant to me and numerous childhood visits to Scotland makes me feel it’s my spiritual home, in spite of living in England all my life. 
I am the youngest of two siblings, a brother and a sister who I see regularly and am close to. 
I’ve been married to Pete, a comedy writer for nearly thirty years and we have identical twin sons aged 26. One of our sons is currently living in Colombia, while the other is in Scotland. Pete and I continue to live in London.  
I worked for many years in the public sector as a family aid worker and latterly as a student disability advisor in Higher Education before becoming a full time self taught artist 15 years or so ago. It’s been a challenging but interesting transition. I’m in the throes of being evicted from my studio for the third time this summer due to the gentrification of SE London…

I am drawn to the Dark and the Light within us all, and the sacred. I like nature’s details,  and her abstract air flowing through landscapes .

What makes me me is that I think for myself and follow my heart and not others. I’m passionate about what I do and want to lead by example by doing and showing what is possible. I shine my light to enlighten others and always try to remain positive and live in the present moment. Help others in any way I can.

My uniqueness is shaped by a blend of experiences, values, and perspectives.  Growing up in a diverse world, I’ve embraced learning, empathy, and adaptability.  Passionate about creativity, technology, and fostering connections, I find fulfilment in helping and inspiring others.  My essence lies in the synthesis of knowledge, curiosity, and the pursuit of positive impact, embodying the belief that continuous growth and open-mindedness define who I am.

What makes me, me, is the culmination of my past, present, and future experiences (everything from the food I ate (body) to the people I met and interacted with (family, friends, boyfriends, authors, mentors, and countries) to the meditation and careful curation of what I keep and what I leave behind.

All my life I have volunteered to help people. I’m a curious person and like to find out how and why things work. I’m the late 1980’s I became a mature student  and took city and guilds embroidery followed by quilt making. I got involve with India while studying embroidery and produced a book. I now work as an artist using mainly pen and ink and am a member of Harborough Artist Cluster.    The only association that I volunteer at is the  Parkinson’s. 
Does this make me/me. I have no idea.

I am not sure. As I become more experienced, I become more aware and accepting of how little I know. My work and pastimes can be fun but are never done. My motivation is family. My titillation is stuff and adventure. I am working incrementally towards Fudoshin.

I ran away from home when 11 years old.
Police put me into children’s refuge.
Went to London to the night shelters when about 16/17.
Then became pregnant with first daughter at 18.
Daughter passed away aged 11.
Came to Northamptonshire and lived with someone but was subjected to domestic violence and put into women’s refuge.
Then became homeless again and started drinking.
Rehoused into a flat currently.
Came to Hope about 5 years ago which helped to socialise and provided a warm space with food.
Hope has very nice people which makes it a place to come to.
Sometimes help by sorting through donations.

My children! My son who is grown and my beautiful daughter who is no longer with us, they made me a mum. They are my first love. I never knew what unconditional love was before having them. I never realised why I was put on earth until I had them. they are my reason for breathing and trying to become a better person.

Who I am today wasn’t built overnight, the confident independent strong person most see from the outside ,although always been there, sometimes hidden behind the smile I have pulled myself out of some dark places, had my insecurities, and heartaches along my journey too.  I have been through quite a lot over the years but that has shaped the person I am now, of which I am quite proud.  Fiercely passionate and put my all in to what I do, and the people that surround me. Honesty & trust is huge to me, once broken there is no going back.  I’m always looking to shape myself to be a better version of me for my future journey whatever that may bring.

I am the most kindhearted but I could kill if needed.  I am on cloud nine I until am in the gutter.  I laugh hysterically and I could cry a river.  I am generous to a fault but I will hoard and covet things.  I can go all day without eating then eat all day without thinking.  I am fun and excitable when drunk.  I am argumentative and nasty when drunk.  I would give my life for the world, yet the world owns me a living.  I am the second coming with love.  I am evil personified with hate.  I AM BIPOLAR.  This could describe anybody but a bipolar person will feel them stronger.  It’s a very tiring place to be for us.
