I am an author, editor and mixed-media artist inspired by the natural world. I write creative non-fiction, fiction and poetry, and I am the editor of The Curlew, a magazine of fine writing and illustration, which raises money for conservation worldwide.
Exploring natural patterns and the effect of light on natural forms, I
create artworks using oils, watercolour, pastels, textiles, collage and
embroidery, using my training as a photographer and ecologist to inform
My books can be found in various outlets, or purchased here. My artworks are in several galleries and venues, including The Waterfront, Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire; The Ardent Gallery, Brecon, Powys; The Marshall Murray Gallery, Monaco & London; Art & Business, Cardiff.
I have worked as a writer, editor, artist and photographer, editing local and regional newspapers and producing and presenting radio and TV programmes – including for the BBC. I have also written and edited books and magazines in the UK and USA, including Horse, Artists & Illustrators, This England, Horizons and The Curlew. My writing has been published worldwide, from India to New Zealand, Kenya to the USA; I was recently shortlisted for a Literature Wales award.
As a writer, editor and ecologist I have worked for conservation organisations such as English Nature (now Natural England), the Countryside Council for Wales, the Wildlife Trusts, the Woodland Trust, Greenpeace and the British Trust for Ornithology. I have also lectured in ecology, biology and conservation in universities, and conducted poetry and creative writing workshops in schools.
I was recently interviewed in a live webcast for Writers' Melon, a writing website in India, speaking about climate change and nature writing.
My artwork is in private collections in the USA, Australia, Monaco, Germany and UK.
