What makes me/me?
I believe that the people I love have contributed to who I am. These people can be family, friends or even characters from TV shows. I unknowingly take pieces of their personalities and incorporate them into what I have accumulated already. I always take it as a compliment when others say that I’m similar to my mum or my closest friend at the time.

The belief and spontaneity that one day you could just pack everything up and runaway without any cares and no one could stop you. I love this idea that freedom can be something that ties someone down, however it also gives a person never ending creativity.

You’re welcome! I would say the clothes I wear, I always wear something really bright and colourful which reflects my upbeat personality! I also think the music I listen to makes me me, as I’ll listen to different music when I’m in different moods such as jazz when I’m happy, or classical when I’m relaxed. Also, I think what makes me me is the impact I have on other people however big or small that is, whether I’ve done a favour for a family member or friend, done a random act of kindness for a stranger or done some volunteering for my local community.

What makes me me is what I want to be for others, for example I want to be a good daughter to my mother so I’ll behave like one or I want to be a good friend to my friends so I’ll be have like one..also the perception sometimes of my closest people can define me and behaviours that I feel comfortable with and others appreciate them for example kindness etc..

What makes me, me:
My belief that there is something other than the materiality of the body. I feel mostly me when involved within the communication process of making art. Thus opening up the possibility that myself as the maker, and potentially the viewer, may encounter a magical or spiritual moment of enlightenment of something previously unknown or unfelt.

I believe that each individual has a vibrational note/sound and that all of these notes form together to create a beautiful cosmic symphony. So at a most basic level I’m that note. I often think about the quality of “me” when I was about two years old. I know that is not me because the self evolves over time with experiences. But that note was at it’s clearly expressed at that time and will be my note for at least this life time. The more I practice, the more I feel I can express that note more clearly again.

The long version takes 62 years, so I guess the short one will have to suffice 😊
I am similar to everyone else in that I’m a mixed bag of DNA, Experiences, beliefs and life force. As to what makes me, me in the unique sense, then I guess the above mixed bag is different to everyone else’s mixed bag. I artistic terms I make what only I can make from my mixed bag and couldn’t be say Picasso, on the other hand he couldn’t be me either…..

Being creative in a visual sense, and with the written word. A very large dose of humour, and being kind to everyone you know, and to those you meet in daily life. Absolutely love music, listening and playing. A love of animals, and trying to protect them worldwide.
