I am fast approaching 35yrs on this astonishing and mostly unexplored planet. Born and raised in Oxford, England, I moved to Glasgow at 18yrs old, but have lived in Australia, Japan, USA and Scandinavia since.
As you've probably already gleaned from my creations, I am a strange little fruit; fascinated by the unknown, consciousness, non-local consciousness, memory palaces, quantum physics, the untrodden path, the macabre, indelibly inked skin stories. I track down and daydream about my Icelandic/Danish family heritage, drawing the people in my life whom I adore, (albeit dead or alive). I often use simply pencil and paper. I also sketch heroines and idols from childhood movies/music/books. I watch every enriching or terrifying film I can bear, play drums badly, adore singing my little heart out..yet have crippling stage fright. I'm enchanted by sea and wild life, if there is any body of water near by I will be swimming in it.
I could and have lost days copywriting, proof reading, arranging words. I am a subculture hunter, the DIY ethos appeals; I cogitate on the Crimethinc ways and on Black Mirror, the trajectory of society, Artificial Intelligence, Sci Fi, perceptions of reality and parallel worlds.
I'm constantly (and unsuccessfully) searching for a way to heal carpet burn, I work to fund my popcorn habit, to appease the gods of rock and roll with a healthy dose of hedonism. I am wrapped in deep and true love, and I like to go to gigs so I can cry when the band comes on and plays their first song. Music is our insides outside after all.
I'm high functioning/non neurotypical; working on many levels at once. Loving hard, forgiving as much as I can, ploughing ahead, reshaping myself at each twist and turn, being desirous of life, embracing dark corners as skilfully as I am able.
If you want to commission a piece of my world for your world then pick a category, pick a picture/influence you identify with, follow the instructions in the blurb and get in contact.
