About me

I like stories, always admired a good storyteller, longed to become one, with the right words for mind pictures that work. Trying to achieve this has been a challenge, and a steep learning curve, full of twists and turns in my search for the best way to make that connection.

As a child I told my stories through pictures. Later as an illustrator I interpreted the words of others before daring to link my own words with my own pictures. Now the words seem to prefer their own space.

I am a graduate of Glasgow School of Art
M.Ltt University of Stirling
VTCT Holistic Therapist.
All this brings something to my writing voice.

My life is varied, busy, interesting, mostly happy, loving.
