Hello and welcome to my website.

Through these pages I share my love of the natural world, as well as professional and creative offerings that reflect these interests.

As a nature writer and environmental project innovator, I conceptualise and curate awareness initiatives that focus on preserving the sanctity of our natural world. My work involves the creation of public displays as well as inspirational materials that explore our complex, ever-changing relationship with the natural world, with a particular emphasis on the small creatures that call our towns and cities home.

Since 2010, I have run the Wild Neighbours Initiative, sharing messaging around living in harmony with urban wildlife. My work has been inspired by Jane Goodall’s words ‘the least I can do is speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves‘.

Over the years, I have come to see that we nurture feelings of concern, compassion and caring when we connect deeply, emotionally, to the land, the animals. This connection then translates into a deep desire to reduce our ecological footprint, to live differently.

Please be in touch if you would like to chat about working together.

I live in the Cotswolds, UK.

My hope and my love, we will go for a while into the wood, scattering the dew, where we will see the trout, we will see the blackbird on its nest; the deer and the buck calling, the little bird that is sweetest singing on the branches; the cuckoo on the top of the fresh green; and death will never come near us for ever in the sweet wood.

AUGUSTA, LADY GREGORY

Not to hurt the creatures brethren is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We must be of service to them wherever they require it.” (St Francis of Assisi)
