Who told you I was calm?

I tend to try to capture the natural world but I like to be challenged and occasionally create more engineered pieces.

6 What’s your signature scent?

Jo Malone’s Red Roses.

7 Describe your perfect weekend:

Newspapers in bed, long walk along a deserted beach with my husband and any or all of my kids, then back home to a fine malt while soaking in my hot tub and gazing at the stars.

8 Which new skill would you love to learn and why?

I’ve loads on my list but I need to improve my photography to capture the joy of kids playing in my new projects with Grounds for Learning.

9 Share something you’ve treated yourself to recently:

Sorry, can’t. I’ve told my husband I bought it ages ago!!

10 How would you like to spend your retirement?

Creating all the sculptures that are still in my head and re-visiting the West Coast islands.
