After I graduated in visusl culture in 1997 at Brighton, where I was born I wrote for The Art book magazine as a book critic. I wrote articles on local history and reviewed art exhibitions for the Sussex Life magazine. In 2001 I moved to France with my 3 year old son and husband. I continued to write for the Sussex Life magazine having a monthly slot on life in France. I started teaching in 2005 in national education and universities in France and continue to do so today. In 2012 I participated in writing an English teaching methods manual for an educational publisher in Bristol.
