About

PortraitI’ve always been drawn to the land and the natural world, and to exploring the past – its mysteries, and how it informs the present. I feel that life is a never-ending journey of discovery.

When I was twenty-two I began selling my art, alongside the nine to five job at an office in North London. Ten years later my first article was published. In the meantime I had escaped the city to live on the Isle of Purbeck, working at an art gallery, then as a museum assistant, before heading for Glastonbury – famous for its Arthurian traditions as well as for a certain music festival down the road at Pilton.

I have written articles for a variety of magazines, on subjects from poetry performance to animals in Celtic art, and find there’s a cross-fertilization between my art and writing. A fascination with the power of creativity, and of sound and symbol throughout the ages, finally took shape in a book ‘The Sacred Word’. My second book ‘Wood Wisdom’ developed from my sense of connection to the natural world and a love of mythology. It was followed by a novel ‘Radiant Brow – The Epic of Taliesin’, inspired by Welsh poetry and tale. Writing it took over ten years and is a story in itself, one that has had a profound effect on my own life.

Between 2002 and 2009, I moved around the West Country but, like a magnet, Glastonbury pulled me back. The town is so much more than Britain’s New Age capital. It has a vibrant arts scene with gigs and open mic sessions, poetry circles and slams, and eclectic exhibitions.

I’m currently studying archaeology with the University of Leicester, and working on my fifth book, a novel due to be published this year.
