About  Me

Hello, I'm Ruth and I live with my husband and three children on the tiny island of Bryher, the smallest inhabited isle of the Isles of Scilly. We run a small, diverse nature-friendly farm and a company called Scilly Chilli. Getting outside to experience nature, to walk, write, sketch and wild swim have become essential tools for my creativity and well-being. 

I write and paint for enjoyment and relaxation. My blog was a snapshot of my island life, although after three years of writing the blog I am now exploring flash fiction and nature writing in combination with my painting and the blog is taking a break. Follow my sea swimming adventures, my dabbles into the world of writing and art, and glimpse a slice of island life.
