After completing a B.A. first degree in English Literature (UWI, St. Augustine) and a Masters (M. Phil) in Criminology (Cambridge University, England), Elspeth did an about turn and worked for nine years as an advertising copywriter.
In October 1999 she left agency life to explore and expand her creative potential. She is now an independent writer, musician (performer, producer and composer of musical scores), visual artist, art photographer and award-winning video/film-maker (camera woman, director). Much of her work is conceptual and interactive in nature, as she prefers viewers to experience rather than simply view what she produces.
Through her company, Happy Hippy Productions, she creates artistic works and productions that aim to uplift, inspire, shift perspectives and increase awareness in self and others.
