Pag ed






It is with much gratitude to Creative New Zealand that I am able to report I have received an Arts Grant to fund the research and writing of a graphic biography about Mary Taylor, affectionately known as Pag, "staunch and true" friend of Charlotte Brontë

To see work-in-progress, follow me on Instagram

I'll be posting up-dates from my research trips here on the blog and on Twitter.

I'm excited to share my progress with you!

Rialto reality


I've been subscribing to The Rialto for years. I'm chuffed to bits to have work in a poetry magazine I genuinely enjoy and have aspired to be in. Huge thanks to Michael Mackmin, Fiona Moore, Edward Doegar, Degna Stone and The Rialto team for including "Cliff" in issue #86.
