Maureen Lilian (Westmoreland) Ille
Let me introduce myself . . .
  • I was born in Scarborough, Yorkshire, 23 October 1942, daughter of an I'Anson mother.
  • I have lived in many places: London; Calgary [Alberta, Canada]; Olean [New York, USA]; Lexington [Kentucky, USA]; near Manchester in England; and now near Gainsborough in Lincolnshire, England. 
  • I have been a lecturer in the history of art for several years, for the University of Hull's Centre for Lifelong Learning and the W.E.A.(Workers' Educational Association).   I also teach Sculpture, Drawing and Painting.  [link to my website]
In my first life I was a maths teacher having dropped 'History' at school as soon as I could.  Now, history is my life, one way and another, and my heart is in the past. I am still very interested in scientific discovery, however, and I like to think that the logical and rational approach of the mathematician remains with me.
