describe what you do –
Mother of two small children and free lance costume designer
your thoughts on ritual –
Ritual is essential to human happiness I think. I was exposed to it growing up in the Catholic faith. I’m interested in the clothing and instruments people of all cultures use during rituals and ceremonies. I explored this in a show I did recently




your health or beauty routine –
Not much of a routine. . . I walk lots, and practise yoga when I can. Recently I’ve been horse riding once a week, which is lovely. I use rosewater and rose hip oil on my face. Being in nature as often is the best tonic, especially if you live in a city with children




do you have a spiritual practice? –
I try to practise the metta bhavana (Buddhist loving kindness meditation) often. The philosophy of Buddhism is an ongoing source of vitality to me but I am fascinated by all spiritual traditions

a place that you love –
I love Cornwall, I am utterly bewitched whenever I visit



a book –

The Living Mountain by Nan Shepherd



a podcast –

I do not listen to any , I can't hear them



an song –

"love tastes like strawberries" by Miriam Makeba

















“I love my vest because it is beautiful and made up of many different soft textures. Also I know it was made slowly and locally, which gives it extra magic.”
