About

Hello! I’m an artist, photographer and professional writer who blogs about creativity – from art to writing to photography. I love to share ideas to encourage others to get creative too!

When not blogging I write and illustrate my own books for children. Previously I was a journalist in London and Madrid. I have worked as a features writer, news correspondent, sub-editor and arts editor. Below is more about what I do:

Writing for children:
I write picture books and middle-grade fiction. I recently completed courses in Creative Writing and Creative Writing for Young Readers, both at the University of Bristol, and am a member of local creative writing groups.

Illustration:
My son calls me Miss Scribble as I’m always sketching and writing something! I spend a lot of time walking in nature, getting inspiration for drawings and characters.

Journalism:
Previously I was a newswire correspondent for several years, having trained as a journalist in London at The Independent, The Daily Telegraph and Channel Four. I started out in journalism as Arts Editor for Madrid’s English-language newspaper.

Translation:
I translate into French and Spanish, having lived, worked and studied abroad during my French and Spanish BA.

All art and photos are my own. I’m very happy for you to repost and share links to my site, but please ask permission.

Thanks so much!
