With a special interest in Literacy development, both in children and adults, my focus is on bringing theatre and performance, including music and song, to small towns and rural communities throughout Wales. I share stories, poetry, song and plays (original, or the work of other writers), with audiences of all backgrounds but especially those with limited access to the Arts, inviting Community Audiences to create stories with me, in the hope that they will feel enriched, engaged and inspired.


Mae cyd-weithio gyda phobl sy'n siarad Cymraeg yn bwysif i mi. Fel dysgwr, rwy'n gwerthfawrogi pob cyfle i ymarfer fy Nghymraeg yn y gymyned.
