Hello. I’m Tanya.

Writer. Photographer. Witch. Forensic psychology student. Creative living advocate. Originally from Northern Ireland, my home is now in Scotland with my little family – a tall man, a small cat and an albino axolotl with a double-barrel surname.

You can find me as TanyaSSimpson on Twitter, and as TanyaSimpson on DeviantArt, where I’m a Community Volunteer. If you want to email me, you can do that at hello@tanyasimonesimpson.com

I love coffee, yoga, cinnamon tea, driving at night, cooking, documentaries about the ocean, the ocean, documentaries about cooking, storms, horror films, the feeling of getting tattooed, expertly choreographed fight scenes, Irish bread, clean kitchens, literally all cats, playing other people’s pianos, and winter mornings. I have a strange discomfort around rubber hose animation and raw tomatoes. I’m a deeply passionate creative living advocate and I believe art is for everyone, always (including you).

I’ve run a photography business and studio, and I’ve taught photography. I’ve managed marketing and online communications for other people. I’ve written for organisations and publications. Now I take photos because it makes me happy, the internet is fun again, and I write because I have stories to tell.
