Ingrid Westlake, French by birth, British by marriage, living in sunny California.

Qualified gemologist (FGA, DGA, GG), I have enjoyed tutoring online gemmology students for the past 11 years. Being a strong believer that education never stops with a diploma, I am currently enrolled as CertHE in History of Art and Architecture with Oxford University, catching up with a field I have always been passionate about but never studied until now.

My blog is about my constant reinvention, also called living a full life as long as you are prepared to never stop looking. It’s about sharing an aesthetic love of life and how using art as a filter or prism enables me (and hopefully you!) to reach a more grounded state of mind.
