I'm a writer. I draw things too.

HELLO THERE!

I’m Kim! I’m a writer and illustrator from London.

I used to spend all my time writing about bands for places like NME and Time Out but now I write stories and poems for children and draw the pictures too. I’m currently working on my FIRST BOOK! The very best place to follow my progress is on INSTAGRAM.

Sometimes I accidentally slip back into Music Journalist Mode (MJM) so expect to find the occasional THIS IS AN AMAZING RECORD OMG type post here but mainly it’s just my poems, drawings, comics, writing and workshops. Speaking of workshops…

WORKSHOPS! I run drama, craft and storytelling workshops for children and am super happy to be resident facilitator at The Bright Emporium in Clapham. I’m also resident storyteller at Clapham Books. You’ll find me there every Wednesday morning reading stories, it’s free!

When I’m not writing, drawing or teaching you might find me performing with electronic pop wonder FEMME or recording Voice Overs.

And if I’m not doing any of those things then I’m probably trying to get better at yoga or counting down the days until I make my annual pilgrimage to Glastonbury Festival. Or sleeping. Maybe I’ll just be sleeping. Sometimes that’s good too.
