I am a writer, editor / proofreader, workshop facilitator and visual artist with a particular interest in book art and stitch.

To date my scripts have been performed at Live Theatre, Newcastle and Octagon Theatre, Bolton and I am currently working on my first commissioned play. My poems have been published in magazines and online, included in exhibitions, read aloud at various venues and now published in a pamphlet-length collection Digging Up the Dead (Red Squirrel Press, 2014).

I have worked collaboratively to produce book art that has been exhibited UK-wide and am currently working on a sequence of stitched artworks exploring cognitive structures and mental health.

In addition to my creative skills I have almost 20 years’ experience of working in a corporate environment in marketing and management roles and currently work on a freelance basis providing copywriting, editing and proofreading services to clients in the arts, education and commercial sectors.
