I am a poet, performer and educator specialising in environmental, wildlife and conservation themes. My first collection of poetry, 'Creatures of the Intertidal Zone' (Cinnamon Press, 2007), was inspired by my journey through Iceland, Greenland and Newfoundland in the footsteps of an intrepid eleventh century Norsewoman, and one of the central themes is the impact of climate change on the Arctic and sub-Arctic. 'Where the Air is Rarefied' (Cinnamon Press, 2011), my latest collection, is a collaboration with visual artist Pat Gregory on mythological and environmental themes relating to the Far North, while my new collection, 'skindancing', focusing on human-animal metamorphosis and exploring our dys/functional relationship with the wild, will be published in 2015.
