A little about me - I am a freelance writer and photographer based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. I'm married to my best friend and we have one son who is 15 years old. I previously worked in bookselling, arts management and market gardening. It was on the land where I discovered the true power of nature and the sheer effort that goes into food production. I’m passionate about protecting our environment and as a family we embrace a slow, simple life.

On this blog I write about slow, simple and sustainable living. From the changing of the seasons, UK travel, nature, my home, gardening to vegetarian cookery.

My first book, ‘Live Green - 52 steps for a more sustainable life’ is published by Quadrille in January 2019. It’s a practical guide of 52 changes - one for each week of the year - you can make to your home and lifestyle to reduce your impact on the environment. Pre-order your copy here.

I am a contributing writer and photographer for Gardenista, 91 Magazine and This is Your KingdomMy work has been featured in The Simple Things magazine June 2016 edition which you can see here and in the October 2017 edition which you can see here. If you'd like to work with me on a feature idea, then please do get in touch via email on jenlittlebirdie@yahoo.co.uk

I also teach Basic DSLR Photography Workshops for beginners at the beautiful Chirpy store in Leeds. The next one is in March 2019. Sign up to Chirpy's mailing list here to be informed when tickets are available.
