Professional Storyteller is a network for people who work in the field of oral storytelling. Please write a brief paragraph about your work.
I'm a professional story teller and writer living in Scotland, who loves traveling as part of my work. A mum and former student of herbal medicine, I love telling stories that include the uses and folklore of plants. My sessions are created specifically for each venue or group and I love weaving history and facts into my stories to give them that shiver of familiarity and a magical hint of the real world. I work with groups of all ages, regularly with schools and nurseries, museums and botanical gardens, I have just completed 2 years writing and delivering workshops for older people and carers in residential settings and have been lead artist on community projects incorporating plants and stories.
