Pippa Bartolotti

Born in Cornwall in 1953, Pippa Bartolotti was a misfit at school, but a budding pianist. She blossomed at art college and became a London fashion designer of some repute.

By 1991, she had founded and managed two of her own companies, made the shift into electronics, and moved to Wales where her family would experience the joys of a country life.

Directorships of other companies followed. She took early retirement to explore different cultures and has lived in Cuba, backpacked round India, and driven a convoy of humanitarian aid from Wales, across Europe to Gaza. Whilst attempting to enter Bethlehem, she was arrested by Israeli security and imprisoned in Givon Prison, Ramla. Currently, she lives in the USA.

She became leader of Wales Green Party in 2011. From her early days as a Samaritan to a UK speaker for Amnesty International, she has consistently campaigned for the rights of the oppressed.
