This website is a window into my creative life :
words, textiles, performances, recipes, workshops and events.
I am drawn to narratives in all manner of forms: creating and extrapolating them, reading threads of story into and out of the natural world, and finding stories through work that people do, or what they make, or say.
I make poetry, fiction, art, dance-movement, crafted textiles and more.
I have spent my life making food, dyes, wine, teas, medicine and all manner of treasures from fields and hedgerows and other foraging sources. For me, creativity and imagination are part of the natural world to which humans belong.
