Following a degree in textile design, I worked as a freelance children’s wear designer. I then became a TV writer and producer and ended up at the BBC. After that I worked in the legal sector which propelled me into setting up a new business providing technology solutions to providers of legal and property services. I found myself as the Marketing Director of that business but I realised that I needed to slow down and return to being creative in a way that was true to myself. I wanted to be an artist again, so I am now exploring the wonders of the natural world as a "sand gazer" and microphotographer.
