“When I first saw the work of Klimt in Vienna as a young student it was love at first sight - I had never dreamed that such beauty existed in the world. This was just the beginning of my lifelong passion for art. I now have the great pleasure of spending all day every day looking at and talking about art - apart from when I’m wild swimming or learning Scottish Gaelic! I particularly enjoy visiting galleries in Scotland to indulge my love of the Glasgow Boys, Glasgow Girls and Scottish Colourists. As an accredited Arts Society lecturer - and a tour guide at Manchester Art Gallery - I love to share the joy of looking at art.”
