I was born and brought up in South Wales and I have worked professionally as a weaver of stories since 1980 – making and adapting work for theatre, film, and taking many journeys with spoken word in one form or another.
I have worked with all kinds of people; visual artists, musicians, scientists, stage magicians, dancers….
From the beginning I have been on the trail of Herstory and since dedicating as a Priestess of the Goddess – and of Avalon – in 2013 the call to explore had become deeper, more insistent. I feel this story weaving calling to be in essence an act of remembrance, service and love. It’s sacred and uproarious, lighthearted, laughing, and dense as a collapsed star.
My practice continues to include teaching in groups of various kinds, and in 2021 it was a privilege to be able to share some ongoing explorations of Herstory via an online course ‘Travelling in Story’ though Glastonbury Goddess Temple.
Storyweavers One, an in-person exploration offered through the Temple, is the next step in this ongoing work.
