“I have always been surrounded by creativity: my parents met when my Mother stepped in to play keyboard in a band where my Father was playing the drums. 
My Grandfather was an ardent writer and my Grandmother is a fantastic painter.
Growing up in such surroundings showed me the innate need for humans to be creative and I would love to share my journey with you.”
