I’m a freelance writer and illustrator based in Edinburgh.

My love of stories comes from an obsession with books that’s spanned my lifetime. There’s nothing I love more than the feel of paper between my fingers, and losing myself in a good story.

I’m currently working on telling my own stories through writing fiction and non-fiction. I also help others tell their stories – whether that’s businesses, brands, or other creative freelancers – by working with a range of clients on copywriting, content marketing, and illustration projects.

You can learn more about my work with portraits, pictures, and prose by taking a look around my website, or send me an email [] to find out more.

When I’m not busy scribbling down a messy doodle or snatched phrase, mostly I’m found foraging near my little house in the hills on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

I’m usually joined by my furry assistant, Eris, a cockapoo puppy with a lot of personality whose name means chaos (or strife).

Yeah, I thought that was funny before she came home, too.
