My family emigrated from South Africa when I was 7 years old. I have lived and worked in and around London and Birmingham but have been in Devon for the last 20 years, moving to Ashburton ten years ago when I remarried. It is a beautiful part of South Devon & so close to the incredible Moors and Coastline. I worked as a nurse for almost 25 years, but since leaving the NHS have reignited my creative passions & am now an artist and sculptor. My husband Chris works on exciting building projects in and around Ashburton and although he was a geologist & spent time overseas in South Africa, he was born and has lived in the west country for most of his life. Last but definitely not least, I have a beautiful daughter, Alice, who has completed her 3rd year at Heythrop, University of London attaining a 2-1 in Study of Religions. I am incredibly proud of her, not only for receiving those results and for all her hard work, but also because she has developed into a strong willed, wonderful person who is great to spend time with & who will do well in whatever she chooses to undertake simply because of who she is.
