I have had an integrated portfolio career spanning 40 years which includes working as a singer-songwriter, trainer and learning designer, creative industries consultant, mother, entrepreneur, lecturer, writer and civil celebrant. I work with professionals in social, public and commercial enterprises, internationally. The main focus of my work involves designing opportunities for experiential learning and organic development for individuals, groups, organisations, institutions and international partnerships. I am currently working with Collage Arts and 10 other European Cultural Organisations on a Cultural Learning Framework that will recognize and validate the contribution that European Artists, Musicians, Dancers, Writers, Film-Makers and other Professional and Specialist Creative People make to our communities through the sharing of their creative and cultural practices in a wide range of informal to formal educational, social and business contexts. I live in a house on the North Norfolk coast with my son, Harry and my dog, Barley.
