After a traditional girls boarding school, I graduated in Psychology from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne and set off to live in a garret in Paris, as one does. I learned some French. On returning to London, I was surprised to find myself married a few months later. With my husband, a senior academic, I owned an art gallery devoted to the ethnic arts in Covent Garden, Central London. In 1980 we moved to India, writing, running creative projects and travelling to remote areas with just a tent, a cat and a dog! I have been back in the UK for many years first making my fortune with some hard work, then looking after my elderly mother and building a house then, from about 2008, setting up and running the IMOS Foundation arts charity. We are presently developing the world’s first interfaith, interracial and international sculpture park on Romney Marsh. This is the latest of several enterprises undertaken by the charity on local and European themes.
