Pippa was born in Delmondhorst, Germany and to Mapperley, Nottingham when she was only 20 months old. For 17 years, she worked from home as a Complementary Health Therapist, and then as a yoga teacher. She has inherited her father love for photography.  She started photos in the late sixties while on holiday in Italy, using a basic Kodak Instamatic. Some of her favourite artists are Ansell Adams, Rembrandt, Matisse, Lowry, Van Gough, Da Vinci, Picasso and Salvador Dali. Since retiring, she has been able to get out and take more photos. She finds this hobby not only stimulating and absorbing but also calming and therapeutic
