Hello and welcome!

I’m Ruth, a writer and journalist with more than twenty years experience across print, broadcast and online media including The Times and Channel 4 News.

I’m also a designer, creating sewing patterns for garments, accessories and homewares – many of which have featured in Love Sewing magazine (and will be coming here soon!).

This, alongside an interest in artistic creativity (I’m a recovering academic with a doctorate from the University of Oxford on how affluence affects the creative drive), informs the unique perspective on creativity, productivity and wellbeing I write about here.

If you are interested in working with me, please get in touch using the contact page or say hello on Instagram @grinlowstudio.
