I’ve been an award-winning storyteller for 20 years. I started storytelling at the National Portrait Gallery after being spotted performing in Northern Stage Ensemble’s production of Grimm Tales.
I went on to become Storyteller In Residence at Seven Stories, The National Centre for Children’s Books. I then performed and ran workshops in hundreds of schools, theatres, museums, National Trust properties and ancient Woodlands until 2008, when I was lucky enough to be appointed Storyteller In Residence for the Roald Dahl Foundation.
For the last few years I have been telling stories with Whispering Wood Folk, an outdoor theatre and circus group, as well as creating my own work and recording many stories.
In 2015, I sailed across the Atlantic with an all-female crew as part of eXXpedition, creating stories embedded with environmental science, love of the earth and adventure.
I have recently completed a facilitator training with Dr. Clarissa Pinkhola Estes, author of women Who Run With The Wolves. Since then I have led year long groups exploring myth and magic. I am also the Witch of Wookey hole.
