After months of talking about it, yesterday I finally took the chance to visit her artist studio. The drive was breathtaking across the Rutland landscape, but a little ominous too - the whole countryside was swathed in that beautiful but apparently unhealthy Saharan smog (so I’m told). And what a lovely place to work! Spacious, warm, organised and convenient.
Having trained hard and disciplined in her youth to swim for Great Britain till her late teens, she has transitioned from that to running a marketing consultancy and now to practicing as a fine artist and arts educator. I find her approach to life very healthy and refreshing. For her too, possibilities are endless, so long as you are open to see them.
