I completed a teaching certificate to teach adults in 2002, and an online course in philosophy with Oxford University in 2005.
I have always loved learning and turned away from fashion towards fine art after having my children.
Fashion then as now is an industry that works two years in advance. It was too much for me to go back to with three young sons and difficult to do part time. So I took up painting and kept going.
