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.”
