Always on the offbeat

I’m a wordsmith, musician and community workshop leader currently based in the Midlands. I work with several charities, organisations and causes delivering music and arts sessions with the intention of supporting communities whilst connecting people to inspiration, each other and themselves. Bursting with ideas ready to venture into new realms and multi-disciplinary projects, I’m a lateral and quick-thinking creative keen to work directly with people to release their creativity and realise artistic visions.

Proud winner of Creative Voice Award 2020 from The Mighty Creatives as “an outstanding creative ambassador making an impact in championing and promoting creativity in the region”.

Poet by surprise who happened upon installation art, stumbled down a multitude of musical stairs and landed with a graphic design degree, I have an obsession with absurd wordplay, funky rhythms and finding the unusual in the everyday. I have been described as “fizzy”, “walking warmth” and my poetry as “falling down alphabet stairs”. When I studied at an art school in France, my illustration teacher said to me

“tu pense au contre-pied”

which means “you think on the other foot”. You’ll find me riddled with pareidolia (finding faces in things), listening intently to silence, searching for new sounds or concocting voices, characters and situations.
