Welcome to the world of Yvette Brown, previously known as Small Brown Bird.  I thought it was high time that I admitted to being a human being so you’ll now find me everywhere being Yvette Brown.  Just to prove that I am a human being, this is me standing on Poppit Sands, Pembrokeshire, near to where I live.

I am a teller of tall tales and tiny stories.  I cram the tall tales into the tiniest space I can, so I make small pewter brooches with enormous character traits, little pewter figures carrying great big thoughts and feelings around with them, and re-constructed books which contain an entirely different tall tale to the one they originally told.


I’m often asked ‘where do you get your ideas?’  From birds.  They are dreadful liars.
