Jake Kendall is a graduate of the University of Edinburgh’s MSc programme in Creative Writing. His own obsession with art began during a happy period working for the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archeology in his hometown of Oxford. Since then, art history and fiction have become twin passions that have fuelled and inspired his imagination.
When he is not writing fiction Jake writes for the Edinburgh International Culture Summit, an organisation that brings cultural ministers together with leaders from the arts world, academics, and activists, focussing on issues of global urgency with the aim of affecting positive change through cultural policy.
His upcoming short story collection, The Vanitas and Other Tales of Art and Obsession, will be published by Neem Tree Press.
