I am a published writer, film-maker, and artist. I live in the Home Counties with my two children.
My grand passion is freedom of expression and it is this that drives my diverse love of the arts and media. Originally a fashion journalist, I now write about parenting, the arts, film, disability and deaf issues, and over the years have had articles published in Vogue, Esquire, The Observer, The Independent, BLOOM, British Deaf News and Disability Arts Online (read my review of Deafinitely Theatre’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream here) among many others.
My latest film, LISTEN, EVEN WHEN YOUR HEART IS CRYING, a 27′ documentary about parental grief from a Deaf person’s perspective produced by Neath Films in association with the BSLBT, has just won its first festival laurels due to it being an Official Selection for Aesthetica Short Film Festival this November. It was also a Best Documentary nominee in the 2015 CINEDEAF Awards.
I am available for presentations subject to a fee on topics relating to special-needs parenting, Deaf Equality and inclusion, women’s issues, film and the arts, particularly disability arts.
