I love hosting new friends and hope to see you soon.
I really enjoy getting out and about in Newcastle and the countryside and coast nearby. I would be happy to help with ideas of places to visit.
I have travelled extensively and have lived in London, Kenya and Abu Dhabi. I used to have a business selling rugs and kilims from Turkey. My mother is a ceramicist and my grandmother was an artist. There are many examples of their work throughout the house along with rugs and textiles that I used to sell. I make jewellery and have had projects for the house such as the large silk lampshades in the hallway and cushions and curtains.
