After various roles in the public sector, she accessed higher education later in life, eventually working as a teacher and raising two children. Interested in the relationships between creativity, spirituality and health and well being, she creates emotionally expressive work, much of it autobiographically rooted.
A period of depression between 2008 and 2013 initiated the transformation of trauma through therapy into recovery, self-awareness, and creativity.
