Jessica was born at home in Bideford, North Devon on 8th February 1979, which is where she grew up.
Eager to follow a creative path, Jessica studied Fashion Promotion & illustration at the Epsom institute of Art & Design. However Jessica path changed dramatically after the birth of her first son In 1999. Realising there was a richness in life she had yet to discover, Jessica returned to Devon to fulfil lost childhood dreams of becoming a teacher.
While studying the Steiner Waldorf teaching degree, Jessica rediscovered her love for movement and stories and went on to develop a portfolio of experience which included teaching childrenâs yoga and many different dance inspired movement classes for children and adults alike. The childrenâs classes often incorporated routines which told a story about our bodies or the world around us.
Forever seeking new adventures and reflecting on lifeâs rich tapestry of mystical questions, Jessica has since followed her heart. As she lovingly puts pen to paper her writing is a mix of experience, nature, the unseen and the intimate connection of life we all share.
As a child, Jessica grew up inspired by her parents love for books. âI remember my dad reading âThe Hobbitâ and âThe Borrowersâ to me. I was captivated by the imaginative worlds such books drew me in toâ Jessica says
âFor me, the imagination is as real as our everyday life and when we allow it to show us the magic it is able to conjure, we open the doors to lifeâs secretsâ.
Jessica now lives in Exeter with her husband, 4 children, 2 cats, 4 rabbits, 4 chickens and Benji and Bella her dogs.
Her life long ambition has been to be happy, never stop learning and to always follow her heart.
