I am a poet, with a special interest in the link between well-being and the arts and in particular expressive writing.
I worked as part of the 'Making of Me' project, a project based at The Courtyard Arts Centre, Hereford, taking poetry into people in residential care, under the mentor-ship of John Killock. This was a research project looking at the effect of taking arts into care homes, being carried out by Worcester University.
I run workshops in creative writing, with an emphasis on poetry. I also work alongside the poet Dorothy Yamamoto to run occasional weekend writing workshops. My poetry has been placed in competitions, published in anthologies, in journals and on line.
I am also a hospice nurse, and keen amateur photographer.
