Get To Know Me
Where do you go for inspiration?
National Portrait Gallery- I love just dropping in for half an hour & soaking up all the colours ,textures and concepts. The portraits offer so much history and the modern galleries are just fun! If I get the chance to return home I find Newcastle particularly inspiring. Its architecture, its people, and of course there’s always St James Park!
Tennis & horse riding & watching football
Best personal sporting moment?
Winning the All School Tennis Competition and being presented the trophy by none other than... Sir Cliff ‘ Singing in the Rain’ Richards!
If you had an open plane ticket, where would you go?
I’ve always wanted to go to New Zealand- I hear its breath taking
