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 have also started to tell a lot of lies about birds in some pages that I have apparently torn out of an old bird book – I haven’t, of course, I’ve just made them up. I love birds, I spend a lot of my education looking out of the window at them. I also love beaches, books and tea. Currently living between Pembrokeshire and my imaginary world, I am never far from a bird, a book, or a kettle.
I’m often asked ‘where do you get your ideas?’ From birds. They are dreadful liars.
