Susanna lived and worked in London before retiring to the coast. She is an artist and over the years she has worked with young offenders, prisoners and homeless people. She ran after-school art sessions in Primary schools and was the Administrator for Maison Verte, which provided drop-in “stay-and-play” sessions for pre-school children and their parents/carers. Staffed by psychotherapy-trained support workers, disadvantaged people received early interventions.
Susanna believes strongly in the value of creativity and finds working with children exciting – “you never know who you are sitting next to”.
