Heather is a fledgling storyteller, lover of tales (and tails), animals, the natural world and magical Otherworlds. One of her key life skills is seeing the animals in people, and the people in animals, and finding both the underbelly and the mischief in life. A wild woman in training; she loves exploring different lands, meeting other humans, crashing about, listening to the beasts, narrating the world around us and laughing.
After a long dalliance with stories, Heather got on with it in earnest in 2017 after working in South Sudan and realising stories are the heart language which can carry the hope of change. She studied at the International School of Storytelling and has performed at a string of festivals with WetheUncivilised, at story nights in Bristol, and recently was commissioned by an artist to create a story for community tree planting events in Exeter.
Her current areas of focus and interest include exploring our murky history and how that influences societies today, exploring connection with nature as a pathway to belonging, and seeking the old feminine wisdom in stories hidden beneath their patriarchal overcoats.
