So kind of you to ask! I’d like to keep this short and sweet so in a nutshell … I am a writer, nature lover and freelance journalist. I am also a bit obsessed with taking photos of flowers.

Supporting women in their creative journeys is what I love and Fables and Flora is here to help you find uplifting moments in each day while encouraging you to pursue your own passions and projects.

California has connected me to some fun people and projects like “Bulletin from Google” and I am also currently a contributor for the Dublin Patch online news service. Participating in TEDx EmeraldGlenPark has been a unique highlight for me. My talk is about “Community, Connection and the Art of Storytelling”.

The main takeaway is my mantra “T-A-P” Think, Act, Persevere!

As Co-Founder of the Dublin Arts Collective I have met some amazingly talented women. Our programs encourage developing and established artists so feel free to get in touch if you are interested. We also welcome any donations to support the Arts in the Tri-Valley Area of Northern California!

Writing has been the single thread that held my career diversity together. My ventures in freelance journalism have led me to re-discover my passion for photographing flowers and you can now purchase my prints from pixels.com

We left the spectacular city of Cape Town in South Africa to live in the beautiful East Sussex countryside for three years and have now relocated again to sunny California. I live with my inspirational husband and my two loving and energetic children and I am thoroughly enjoying myself.

I hope you will be inspired to Take Your Turn and embark on your own creative journey!
