Thanks for coming by. I'm a writer, theatre maker and storyteller, making work that explores how and why we tell stories, whether as myth, folktale, original or real-life stories, and I often collaborate with other artists to experiment with new ways of telling them.
Right now I have a new book out, the first in the series: "Storylore", created in collaboration with the Dutch sculptor/artist, Marjan Wouda, called "The White Dobbie: Story and Landscape". It revisits an ancient Cumbrian folktale and the people and place that define it.
Collaborations with visual artists, musicians, composers, film makers and animators have led to multi-media performance work, films, books and exhibitions. The latest of these have explored folktales and real life stories from Lancashire and the Isle of Arran.
Storywheel Workshops and Courses are experiential and are all about observing how and why we use stories to navigate our lives and becoming aware of the imaginative possibilities and new thinking that open up for us when we see how we do this.
