I tell stories to adults, children and families in English and in Welsh.
I combine my passion for stories with my love of nature.
.My stories often have animals in them like deer, squirrels, eagles and cows.
I have told stories in a cafe, a dementia care unit, in schools, at a festival, in village halls, in a pub garden, museum, church, on pavements, while walking through fields and under an old oak tree.
The teller and the audience, whether one or a thousand, share a space, where the imagination lives and creates.
"Imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be"
Everyone is a natural storyteller, whether we're telling the story of a grand myth or an anecdote.
My aim is to transport people to an imaginary land where characters live their lives, meet their challenges, and, sometimes, triumph.
Imaginary worlds are all around us as well as within us. What do you see?
Stories may entertain us.
They may move us to tears.
They may make us laugh out loud.
They may challenge and anger us.
They may guide us and inspire us.
They may point the way.
They may shine a light into the deepest parts of our selves.
I run occasional story workshops from time to time.
As a group, we feel our way through a story, and gather the gems of meaning for our own lives.
If you're interested in Story workshops, please let me know here.
I tell folktales, myths, fairy stories, tales from my life and beautiful image-rich wonder tales from around the world.
I also tell stories of trees, that sometimes dance and sing, and sometimes need our help.
I create vivid stories from historical facts. In the summer of 2016, thanks to an Arts Council Wales grant, I was commissioned by Theatr Hafren to research, project manage and deliver the story of the Early Montgomeryshire Quakers, through story walks and performances.
I run occasional residential story retreats from time to time.
I combine the beauty of the Welsh countryside with storytelling,
and much, much more.
