I greet guests and will happily offer suggestions about the area if needed. I live in the other side of the farmhouse with my children of 8 and 11 years. All entrances are separate and private.
I am a London-born figurative and landscape painter living in Ronda.Originally a Cambridge University History/Art History graduate I then took the less common path of training at Rambert Dance School to become a contemporary dancer and choreographer.Torn discs in my back ultimately brought this ten year era of my life to a close, so with a fervent desire to paint and my husband to write a book, we packed the car and drove to Spain for a six-month adventure, which has lasted a good few years longer.
After a year, we found an abandoned walnut and apple farm with two houses that was perfect for restoration.Twelve years and two children later I still live here, although one of the houses has become Casa Maia, a holiday home for other people seeking the warmth and beauty of Andalucia.
This amazing landscape has inspired me to paint, garden and even to run. Injury free, I can explore the countryside running through its valleys and hills.Its beauty and the quality of the light, the fresh food, the people and music of this region have helped to heal my back.
