My wildlife work and art
Outside of my freelance editing, I am a keen naturalist and love to write about and photograph wildlife. I also enjoy a range of craft activities and run an online shop, Nature Crafts, selling nature-themed artwork and handmade gifts. I sell a range of t-shirts with my own unique designs via Teemill.
