Based in Buxton in Derbyshire, Gordon’s company Creeping Toad sets out to find ways of helping people explore and express their relationship with the world around them. A writer, visual artist and storyteller, Gordon mixes media to give people tools to work with and voices to speak with. Touring the Highlands at least twice a year, Gordon draws on his west coast heritage to tell stories of mountains and sea, of selkies and brownies.
“I believe,” says Gordon, “that we live in a world worth celebrating. When I tell stories, I hope that those stories will inspire people to look a little more closely at the everyday places, plants and animals that surround us. For me, stories are there to inspire people to enjoy the world around them”.
