Angela Paine grew up on a hop farm in Kent. Her botanist father taught her about plants, taking her on walks in the nearby woods and explaining how mosses and liverworts reproduced, insect populations of oak trees, how bees pollinated flowers and much more. She ended up in Florence in 1968, washing books after the great flood in the National Library, later marrying, having two children and living in an old olive press in Tuscany. On her return to Britain and she worked as an antique dealer for several years, before embarking on a first degree in Human Physiology, a post graduate diploma in Pharmacology, then a PhD in medicinal plant chemistry. She went on research trips to Africa and South America to collect plant material used as medicine, and collaborated with scientists around the world, publishing internationally in scientific journals. She retired to the Golden Valley on the border with Wales, where she continued her research into the medicinal properties of the local, native plants which were used by the ancient Celts. Immersed in the Celtic tradition, she runs workshops on Celtic Medicinal Plants.
