From the earliest age, I believed I was a fairy…
…it set me apart and gave me licence to do and be whatever I wanted. It has taken a lifetime to understand how lovely this magic and creativity is.
When I was eight my father showed me a Deposition painting by Bellini which blew my mind. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen, and I wanted to be a part of this powerful wonderful shocking art, too. Until that moment I had only seen illustrations in children’s books. Nothing could have prepared me for the effect of this extraordinary work of art.
I have an MA Hons in Art History (specialising in Italian Renaissance painting, thanks to Bellini). I am a Reiki Master, a trained holistic end of life companion, a grandmother, a writer and a speaker.
