How does the landscape influence and inspire us? This is the core of my work – researching landscape history and culture, and crafting both prose and poetry to explore creative connections to nature and place. From a career in landscape management and environmental policy, my focus is now designed to encourage community writing in response to nature, and to connect people with their landscape memories.
I am available to commission as a writer or to run writing workshops. I am also interested in collaborative ventures which explore and celebrate landscapes and raise awareness of the need to take action to protect them.
I have been published in a number of landscape essay anthologies. Details of publications and some examples of my work on my website.
