- Who am I?
Who can really say? My name is Karen Sherwood and I am the founder, owner and director of Cupola Contemporary Art, a fine art graduate from Sheffield Hallam (Yes I went to Psalter Lane), mother of two boys and a keen amateur diver (not scuber diving the other kind).
- Where are you from?
well, I was born in Stamford in America, but only accidentally, as my parents were working over there at the time. They had me registered at the British Embassy. I came to England when I was 2 and half years old. I grew up in Kegworth, in the Midlands, close to the famous air crash of 1989 (near east Midlands airport).
- Where can you find your business/product?
The gallery is situated in Hillsborough – opposite the Leppings Lane tram stop. Free chocolate cake every Saturday and children (and babies) most welcome! Check us out at http://www.cupolagallery.com
- What is your favourite thing to do as a family?
Both my boys are on the autistic spectrum but are very different with almost opposite interest and needs, so ‘family’ activity is pretty tricky at the best of times. I find trips to the beach/seaside in reasonable weather seems to work for most members of our family group for longest….
- What is your top mama tip?
Top tip? You can’t get hung over whilst breastfeeding!! I checked this out – worked for me lol! Not one to practise too often though 😉
Other tip is: almost never listen to ‘advice’ – we are all unique and so are all your babies – what works for one, is unlikely to work for another. Enjoy every moment
Karen is coming in to talk at Mama Social on Friday 19th February
