WHO AM I?
  I'm a writer and artist, living part of the year in London and part of the year in rural Alsace, France.

WRITING
 My memoir Send me a parcel with a hundred lovely things is about displacement and reinvention, suspicion of refugees, growing up in two languages, and the impulse to create an alternative life-style. It explores the creative and imaginative spaces that lie between the writer, the community and the reader.
  My book speaks to anyone who has imagined belonging and dreams of creating community.

MAKING PICTURES
 I paint pictures in the countryside, I make collages, I have studied Chinese Brush painting, I go to weekly Life Drawing classes and I sketch on the underground, in cafes and wherever we park our campervan.

MAKING VIDEOS
 My first degree was in Drama and most of my working life has involved the arts. I also pioneered the use of video as a tool for involving and empowering local communities.
 I retrained as a Systemic/Narrative psychotherapist and subsequently worked as a clinician in the NHS. This is when I developed Seeing is Believing - a therapeutic intervention using video to capture ‘magic moments’ between parents and their infants.
