Writing Bits and Bobs

Style and Theme

A published poet, I write literary fiction, poetry, articles, creative non-fiction essays and reviews. I’m very inspired by fairy tales and my work often explores the theme of creativity as a transformative force.

My work is inspired by mental health and well being concepts and serves as a celebration of the daily domestic world. It also considers the wider global contexts of climate change and environmental degradation. Stylistically, I write with a lyrical approach where I see writing in the context of wider artistic and creative practice.
