I’m a 27-year-old nature writer and artist from the South Downs in Hampshire. I work from my home studio where I live with my husband Dave and our Spanish rescue dogs Pablo and Tequila.

My third book Dark Skies will be published in September 2019 with Bloomsbury - inspired by a year exploring the landscape at night to see how we connect with nature after dark.

In 2019 I was chosen as a Writer-in-Residence for Forestry England’s centenary project celebrating 100 years of forestry. You can read more about my residency here.

I have a Masters in English: Issues in Modern Culture from University College London - my thesis explored wanderers, settlers and pastoral landscapes in the novels of Norwegian author Knut Hamsun.

I love travelling to new places, listening to different languages, and opening my mind to new perspectives, and in my spare time I like cooking, river swimming, watching Poirot and riding the family horse across the Downs. I am also a member of the British Trust for Ornithology and Hampshire Wildlife Trust.
