I have a BA (Hons) degree in Philosophy and English Studies and far too many interests. These include: literature/poetry, writing, music, travel, dance, yoga, philosophy, languages (I speak good French, some German and beginner Spanish), theories, dance, concepts, myths and theology, art, stories, good causes, playing the piano (grade 8) and drums, people, singing very loudly in my car (I have some vocal training), feminism, morality, cooking, science (astronomy; wondering at the natural world and how it works), space and time, linguistics, mojitos, films, cooking, baking cupcakes and fruit crumbles, dreams, my future house, creativity, forming plans and writing lists, psychology; exploration and learning.
I would also like to use this space to thank the photographers and artists who ask me to model for them and then furnish me with the end results (without which this website would be much less fun to look at!). Thanks also to Keith Cooper who generously let the incredibly talented artist Pat Brennan (of http://www.moonmomma.co.uk) turn his photo of me into my beautiful homepage, a magical fairy playground which made my jaw drop when I saw it. Thank you!
