Mia lives in North West England. She is a bit of an eclectic when it comes to art. At school she loved to illustrate her English essays and write stories. Her teacher made her cringe from embarrassment when she held up her work. She was lucky enough to win a scholarship to art school and loved every moment of it. After receiving an MA in Graphic Design she decided to move to the heady lights of London. During those early days she was flat broke and made endless pots of homemade soup. For a very short time she trained to become a Chartered accountant and jacked that in when she realised she struggled to balance other people's books. Then one day she got into computers and never looked back. She spent many years training other professionals in some of the top companies and advertising agencies helping them create magazines, brochures and leaflets. When she returned to the North West she decided to take a break from training others and spend more time developing her own designs. Needing to instil a manageable work life balance and address some personal issues she sought help through mindfulness therapy which set her on the road to practising living in the now.
