Why, hello there.

How very nice to meet you. I'm Stacey: writer, blogger, occasional baker. I'm a far-from-home South African currently residing in London, UK. I live with my husband, photographer Graeme, and a very large collection of yarn and buttons.

I've got an MA (Hons) degree in English Literature, and I've also studied writing for the media, media law, philosophy and the history of film. I've worked primarily as a writer and teacher for most of my professional career and I've been writing for the web and e-commerce industries for the last eight years.

As a writer I've worked for dozens of industries from e-commerce websites to government institutions, and I've done a bit of creative writing as well. I've developed marketing materials, press packages, corporate brand identities, blog posts and reviews. I also currently work as a food and literary journalist, visit me over at The South African to read my most recent work.

When I'm not writing, I'm creating. I knit, bake and make and I've worked in a number of different artistic mediums from graphite-on-paper to oils-on-canvas. At the moment I spend most of my time working with a digital paintbrush designing websites and marketing materials with heaps of personality.

If you want to know more about what I do when I'm not designing or writing, head over to my blog, Bakercourt, and feast your eyes on some delicious bakes, creative makes and some interesting views of ye olde London Town.
