Knebworth Metal works

In 1995, after University, I founded my own business, designing and making bespoke furniture in wood, metal and ceramics.

My bespoke furniture design evolved in to a range of carved wooden furniture for batch production. I spent some time in Ghana, sourcing sustainable wood and carving in a local furniture factory. In December 1998 I had a successful show at the Air Gallery in Dover Street, London.

Motherhood, Murals, Marriage & Yoga

That career was brought to an end by the birth of my first daughter Lily in 1998. I moved to London and worked as a mural artist and portrait painter, which I continue to do today.

In 2001 I trained as a yoga teacher in the Sivananda Ashram in Canada. I subsequently taught pregnancy yoga twice a week at the Innergy Yoga Centre in North London, until the birth of my second daughter, Sophia in 2004. I had studied hatha yoga at Innergy Yoga Centre with the inspirational Fausto Dorelli since 1998. In 2003 I married his gorgeous, talented son Demian Dorelli in the rose garden at Knebworth House.

Demian is a pianist/composer, check out his recent releases - 'Pink Moon - a Journey on Piano' and 'My Window'.

Point Zero Painting & Teaching

In 2001 I went to Easlen in California and studied Point Zero Painting with the wonderful Michele Cassou. Her unique painting process set me on a journey of self-discovery in paint, learning a formula for breaking through creative blocks, exploring creative flow and strengthening the intuitive voice. Compelled to share the enlightening process, I started teaching it as an after-school club in South London and have continued to teach it ever since in schools, colleges, workshops and retreats around the world, for both adults and children. 

In 2007 I was awarded a grant from The Rural Outreach Learning Initiative to set up adult Point Zero Painting classes. In 2008/10 I continued teaching it for Cornwall College's outreach department having gained a PTTLS teaching qualification. I also taught life drawing for Cornwall Adult Education in 2009/10. In January 2010 I studied with Michele again on her teacher training master class in San Francisco.


I have lived with my family in Cambridge, UK since 2010. I continue to paint portraits and teach in schools/colleges/organisations for both adults and children. I took part in Cambridge Open Studios, displaying my own and my students work in 2013, 14, 16 & 18.


We were blessed to spend 2016 -18 exploring the wonders of India, where I got to work for Whitefield Rising Trust in Bangalore. I introduced an art curriculum and taught both students and trained teachers at a local government school. I also ran various community art and mural painting projects. 

Samuel Ward

After completing my PGCE at Cambridge University in 2019, I worked full time teaching Art & Design Technology at Samuel Ward Academy state secondary school, in Haverhill, UK. With student and family support, we built a unique DT/art classroom for the students from reclaimed and up-cycled materials. I hope to inspire all the students I work with, that things can be done differently and they all have an opportunity to change the world for the better.

Bali Life

I spent six months of 2020-2021 in beautiful Bali, Indonesia, working and supporting creative projects at LalaLand Creative Studios and teaching high-school art & design for the famous Green School.

Biophilic Education
Biophilic Education

I am now working on a project to help transform the future of education. We are promoting a new Biophilic Education movement that nurtures the love of life, a place where our young people can flourish.

I have co-founded a social venture called Biophilic Education Alliance (BE ALL). We have built a new holistic, transdisciplinary Da Vinci Life-Skills (DVLS) Curriculum and Assessment framework, with an accompanying BE mentor training program.

Our aim is to create a more sustainable, ethical and inclusive education that promotes collaboration over competition. We are inspiring the entrepreneurs and changemakers of the future.

We have been piloting DVLS at Empathy Middle School Bali since Jan. 2022.
