Letters published in the Financial Times

In 2011 I wrote my first ever letter to a newspaper on the subject of women artists. I was surprised, proud and pleased when the Financial Times published it. Since then, I have had six further letters published in the FT – all equally subjective and dealing with the role of women as artists, older women and the perception of women, as well as the role of the artist in society.
