I was first published in my local newspaper at 7 years of age with a poem I wrote about science. And although I am dyslexic I have gone on to prove you can do what you love, even if it is a challenge sometimes. I adore poetry, especially spoken word poetry, and I am a regular at many open mic nights from my hometown of Leicester to London and beyond.
I am also a published and award winning writer and have two books available for sale on my website.
I wrote and directed my first stage production in 2018 that had been adapted from the first book I wrote called ‘Memoirs of a Dater’. I was blessed to have the production as the opening act for the Leicester Comedy Festival. ‘Memoirs of a Dater’ was commissioned from me in 2019 and is now in preparation to tour London in 2020!
I am also a song writer and have had my song ‘out of glue’ played on BBC introducing! I’m always happy to collaborate for song writing.
I love art! viewing, working with and creating art. I’m a trained Taxidermist and have produced work for world famous photographer Rankin and magician Darren Brown.
I also sell sketches of ‘The hanging people’ these people represent my deep depression when I was pregnant. I have exhibited my work at Brick Lane Gallery in London and During Art House in Leicester.
I am currently looking for a agent! If that’s you please contact me.
The best is yet to come!
