The heart of my work as a professional Storyteller has always been to give voice to the 'voiceless' - all that flies, swims, crawls, walks, all that flows and grows, and the rewilding of our communities hearts and minds through story.
I work with the wee folk, elders and all those in between gathering and spinning a yarn, storytelling and storymaking, creating new tales connected to place with children, and encouraging our elders to share their stories. I have worked with RSGS, Historic Scotland, Forestry Commission, Plantlife Scotland, Living Voices, SCO, and National Library of Scotland, delivering creative projects connecting people to the land of story and our rich heritage and folklore.
My overseas work has included story-projects in Sapmi, Finland, Norway, Japan, France, Estonia, India. I also have collaborated with a Finnish storyteller on bilingual storytelling performances over the last seven years.
I am a singer, play the clarsach, percussionist and as a practicing artist create visual imagery inspired by the stories I tell and can be found in my Honeybee Hut at the end of my garden. Come join me for a cuppee, and listening to the birds sweet songs, tales of the women who made the mountains sing.
