Mrs Easom is a prolific poet, writer, and artist that has displayed her work across the Oxfordshire area.
She describes herself online as a ‘child in time’ and says: ‘We are all part of the spectrum of possibilities. It is up to each and everyone of us to decide.’
She regularly posted online pictures of plants, the sky and beautiful household ornament alongside poems she had written.
One picture of a bee collecting pollen from a flower online was posted with the accompanying verses: ‘The wing of a bird as a bee. / A foot that clutches the branches, / The twigs of a tree. Gathers too. / Swims… Flys 60 hours to connect / Distant histories. / The wing of a bird/ As the bee gathers / Ancient history. / Like honey…’
Having studied Theology at Oxford University, Mrs Easom works as an interior designer who creates hand painted furniture.
She writes of herself: ‘I adore the abundance of water in Oxford and continue to row but these days only for pleasure. I am a life member of The Oxford Union, debating Society.’
She was wearing a white fluffy jumper with a pale/cream polo neck jumper underneath, black tights, a cream skirt, and ballet pump style shoes
