About Me

I’m a fun-loving character;  I love art, nature, walking, travelling, languages & culture. I have lived in Derbyshire for 35 years, I love it here and consider myself a representative for the region.
My spare time is spent walking and taking photographs of the stunning Derbyshire landscape. Being in nature and noticing the small wonders of the natural world is my restorative therapy. I truly believe that being outdoors is good for the mind, body and soul.
I also paint and partake in creative practices such as printing, driftwood art and digital art, all of which are encompassed in my small artistic business delivering workshops for adults and children.

My Work History

My work history incorporates, international relations, tourism development, education, event management, workshop provider, face-painting as well as several other roles. Countries I’ve worked in include Japan, France and Africa; I speak conversational French and Japanese, as well as a smidgen of German and Spanish. Over the years I have welcomed many international visitors to the region and shown them the delights of Derbyshire.
Meeting new people, making connections and sharing stories is an enriching experience so I look forward to meeting you here in beautiful Derbyshire, to show you some of my favourite places.
I hold a current Level 3 Outdoor First Aid Certificate and am DBS checked.
