In 2000 I chucked in my job as an art gallery curator and retrained in horticulture while looking for a job outside. I am now building a business based around my twin passions - plants and fabrics - and rooted firmly in the beautiful area where I live. In the summer I grow cut flowers and herbs, in the winter I sew things from wonderful textiles. Both are sold from a van in my drive and at farmers markets.
I am based near to Drymen in the Loch Lomond National Park in Scotland.
I live with Euan, our two daughters Zoe and Katie, 3 cats, 1 dog, 7 chickens, 3 ducks and a rabbit.
