Teya-Jean graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2012 with an MA in English Literature and returned in 2014 to complete a MSc in Creative Writing. Her career in the arts was nurtured at Eden Court Theatre, where she assisted the Creative department for two years in a role that taught her everything from how to write a Rabbie-Burns-themed murder mystery from scratch, to composing and playing a live score for a theatre production for Under 5s. In early 2019, she migrated back to her roots in traditional music and joined the Fèis Rois team as the Community Classes Coordinator. As a folk singer-songwriter herself, Teya-Jean can be seen gigging around the Highlands and is also a fledgling writer with a little poetry and short story success. When she’s not tuning her guitar, or zipping around Ross-Shire with various instruments in her Mini, she can be found scouting the local hills with her dog, Limòn.
