C.R. Dudley is a visual artist, writer, and mind explorer. She is fascinated by the human condition, in particular the effect future technological developments might have on the psyche, and sees everything she creates as part of one continuous artwork.
She started blogging in 2014 as a way to express the ideas stemming from her studies in Jungian psychology, philosophy and various schools of mysticism. Her first few stories were distributed as hand-stitched art zines in aid of a mental health charity, and her style became known for its multi-layered narratives.
In 2017 she founded Orchid’s Lantern, a small independent press focusing on the metaphysical and visionary genre. She is the author of two short story collections, Fragments of Perception and Mind in the Gap, as well as a forthcoming series of novels inspired by the workings of the unconscious mind.
C.R. Dudley lives in North Yorkshire, and is a lover of forest walks, pizza, tequila and dark music.
You can read her flash fiction, articles and reviews on the Orchid’s Lantern website.
