My earliest creative memory was when I was 7 years old. I won a school Christmas card design competition and received a £3 gift voucher for W H Smiths. I was over the moon because this was the exact amount of cash needed to acquire Ballerina Sindy. Unfortunately my parents deemed it more suitable that I take an encyclopedia to the till. I did.

I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
