About the Book
I trained as a doctor and worked for many years in hospital medicine in London before moving to Devon, UK. Since then I have founded the Exeter Stress Clinic and also developed my passion for Fine Art, garden design and philosophy. The restoration of Helwell Barton has been an exciting and intensive project with my husband, the winemaker, Matthew Bernstein. I am now involved in a restoration of my current house 'Simcoe House' in Budleigh Salterton, Devon, the weekend house of the famous General John Graves Simcoe, founder of modern day Toronto,Canada. The rivers and sea around East Devon are integral to my work as an artist and writer.
