I initially trained as a Pharmacist and worked for many years in the natural medicines industry. In recent years I have been developing my artistic / therapeutic experience qualifying as an Anthroposophic Health Practitioner (Visual Arts) from the Hibernia college in Stroud. I moved to Scotland in 2006.
