Saturday morning ballet lessons led to wearing a tutu and dancing on stage.

Sundays we often played Snakes and Ladders or Ludo. The games were intense and hours passed quickly.

Afterwards, I would search the garden for snakes. Once I found a grass snake on the front doorstep, sliding into the doll's bed. I knew that animals lurked everywhere, especially in the dark.

At night, I reported all sightings of elephants, snakes, lions and tigers to my parents who brought me a glass of water and told me to sleep. Fact and fantasy, reality and imagination melted together in dreams.

I was born in Brighton on the South Coast of England.

I had a happy childhood and I spent many hours sitting on the pebbled beach watching the gulls and waves.

We measured the tide by its position on the pier which floated or even disappeared on misty days.

I loved the Brighton Pavilion with its oriental domes and I combined them with fairy tales and stories I created.

My earliest memory is of standing with my father and looking into a field and watching a donkey roll over and over.

Straight hair was a problem and it had to be cut, curled or tied back. I shifted position and wriggled and struggled and my paintbrush fringe was chopped shorter and shorter.
