I tell less well known traditional stories from many countries as well as ancient myths from Sumeria and Greece.
I have told stories in many places, including:
- The Woodland Trust
- St Ethelburga’s
- Canterbury Cathedral
- Warwick Words Festival
- Schools in Sutton Coldfield, Kenilworth, Birmingham, and Seattle
- and as Artist in Residence in Amari, Crete
One theme I use for storytelling workshops is:
‘Connecting with your life journey through story’.
In your imagination, a traditional story might look something like a mind map – you could even call it a psychic map. It would look like a diagram with you as the central figure, and there would be various arrows and links to the other important characters in your story.
This is because all the characters in a traditional story are aspects of oneself; they all have a particular role to play: to serve, hinder, condemn, encourage, facilitate, comment etc.
In my workshops we discover how this all works through story, illustration, and discussion.
If you would like to book or discuss a storytelling event, please contact me.
