I earn my living doing what I love.
I am a musician, writer, visual artist, maker of handmade books, workshop facilitator and tutor based in Brighton, UK. My creative work is inspired by people, cities, nature and wild places. I facilitate workshops that encourage creative adventures with music, writing, art and crafts.
When I'm not doing creative work, I can usually be found walking on hills or sitting on the beach.

Music - I work as a violinist, pianist, session musician, improviser and composer. I love teaching music and am an experienced tutor who works with adults and young people as individuals and in groups and ensembles. I collaborate with other musicians, composers, dancers, writers, visual artists, and film makers on joint workshops, sessions and projects.
Writing - My writing has been published in various journals, anthologies and online. My work has been selected for places in masterclasses and workshops. I write poetry, fiction, script for performance and nonfiction, some of which appears in limited edition books.
Visual art - I love drawing, painting and photography. Walking with a sketchbook and pen in my pocket is my idea of a perfect day.
Handmade books - I design and make handmade books. I have many happy customers, make work to special order and commission and sell my books in Brighton Artists Open Houses and Pop up sales.
