Hello! I am a journalist inspired by all things art and culture. Occasionally I like to indulge in a bit of making and creating – usually collages and stitched mixed media pieces – which I like to share on this blog. You’ll also find posts about artists and pop culture phenomena which have caught my eye.
A little bit about this blog: I began it in 2015 after I had finished my A Levels, it was mainly as a response to reading Rookie Mag (now defunct). Although some of the writing is questionable, I have never deleted any posts as I think this blog serves as an ongoing sketchbook of ideas / a digital mind-map.
And a little bit about me: I have a degree in French and German, during my time at University I hosted my own radio show, wrote reviews for the online magazine The State of the Arts and became the Features Editor and Design Editor for the student paper, The Mancunion. I received a highly commended award at the SPA awards for my interview with Rosy Candlin about period poverty. I co-wrote a blog with a friend, Groovier Times Are Ahead, which explored all things groovy. I’m currently completing my NCTJ in Manchester.
I hope you enjoy visiting this blog!
