I’m female, in my late thirties and live in the north west of England. I previously worked in IT until being made redundant at the end of 2013. So far I have not sought paid employment but do spend time doing voluntary work at an animal shelter and at an office each week. Because of the difficulties I am experiencing, I attend psychotherapy regularly. Apart from my art work, I also like knitting, crochet, cross stitch, nature and photography.
