British copywriter and copy editor based in Gothenburg
I specialise in English language copy that gets your message across to an international audience a straightforward yet compelling way. I'm trained at master's level in contemporary art, and have recently competed the freestanding course Publication in the expanded field at Valand Academy. While specialising in art and culture communications, I enjoy producing and editing texts for a wide range of sectors on a project basis.
The type of content I’m most passionate about uses tech to help people explore places and build community - like tourism apps, local activity networks and alternative city guides.
Still from Run-Around, award-winning film by artist Katxerê Medina
In 9 years of producing and editing texts for the arts, I’ve honed my skills in explaining complex ideas in simple terms. In artwork descriptions, research project outlines and exhibition introductions, I have a keen sense of what works and why. Equally I’ve seen the pitfalls (ever heard of ‘International Art English’?). Whether art related or not, I can transform your text into an engaging read that captures your audience’s imagination.

Copy editing & Proofreading:
As a native English writer and editor, I specialise in refining English language texts for clarity and style. I also have a good working knowledge of Swedish and can translate basic texts from Swedish to English.
