Beth Crane is an independent artist, designer and writer based in London. She works in a variety of materials including acrylic paint, wood, metal, plastic, ink and digital graphics. Current work in progress includes The Little Hat Thief (a book for kids) and Upholstery (a book that is definitely not for kids).
I studied Scriptwriting and Performance at the University of East Anglia and emerged with a BA and Masters degree. I’ve always been interested in creating things (as pretentious as that sounds) and I’m happiest when I’m writing, painting or making something.
Since completing my MA at UEA, I’ve been writing almost continuously. I’ve worked as a PR, an editor, a proofreader and a post-translation localiser over the past few years but I make time for my own writing too.
I am also part of the Nevertheless She writers group, working collaboratively and supportively on a range of topics.
I am also working on a radio/podcast series for Battle Bird Productions: “We Fix Space Junk”, a sci-fi sitcom, coming later this year.
