Working as a freelance arts consultant, hunting out the wood for the trees in search of the perfect work/life balance, previously Director of TMPL Consultants/Training, and prior to that spent the nineties as City Arts Officer for Coventry.  I am an experienced founder, board member and chair of arts organisations including Beaford Arts, Exeter Phoenix, ArtsMatrix,  Arts + Media Training, Talking Birds and the West Midlands Regional Committee of the National Trust. Just to keep things really interesting, I also run a farm in Devon and a range of smallholder courses with my husband, and write regularly for a number of smallholding magazines.
