About me
I’m a writer, editor and artist of all sorts, primarily interested in the intersection between literary fiction, history, and ecology. Born in Cambridge in 1998, I grew up in East Anglia before moving to Scotland to pursue higher education. During my time at the University of Edinburgh, I directed student theatre, wrote regularly for several independent journals, and edited the Edinburgh College of Art’s annual magazine CANVAS. I also headed up the social media, publicity, and careers elements of the university’s History of Art Society, more than doubling their membership count during the years I worked with them. In 2020 I graduated with a 1st class MA (Hons) degree in History of Art and English Literature. Since then, I have concentrated on expanding my creative and critical writing portfolio. My work comes from my own life experiences and is informed by my interests in philosophy, aesthetics, and politics. My writing strives to mobilise meaningful ideas to create stories that enrich our collective relationship with the world and nurture emotional intelligence.

    From Fleabag to Flowers: The Resurrection of ‘Gallows Humour’ for MXOGYNYArticle and Artwork by Tabby Carless-Frost for Mxogyny Magazine, Edinburgh. In the wake of being cruelly dumped at the bus stop by Fleabag, audiences everywhere are evidently in desperate need of more dark comedy to fill the empty, aching, Fleabag-shaped void. No one can deny that UK television has had a significant shift in tone, it seems we no longer want to watch something which is just funny, or just tragic. Instead, the current surge in popularity for the ‘hilarious-come-heart-breaking’ su
