Candidate for East Lothian and the South Scotland regional list
I am an environmental artist and lecturer in fine art with a masters degree in Fine Art
Before beginning this career, I spent some 25 years working in the 3rd sector in community development and mental health.
I am married with children and grandchildren. I coordinated the care of my aged parents, both of whom suffered from dementia, and I have responsibility for the care of a sister with autism.
I was the East Lothian candidate in the 2011 Scottish election and 2015 General Election. I am on the Scottish Green Lib Dems Executive and have been on the East Lothian party’s exec.
My core concerns include the need for urgent action to tackle climate change and the need to address the widening and shocking gap between rich and poor.
