All the things I’ve come through, my environment, books, nature, pets, my daughter.

my smiles and tears,
my hopes and fears,
the good and the bad,
everything i’ve given away
and all the gifts i’ve had…
inspired by Adam Clement
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.
inspired by Marcus Antony Billen
Allowing ourselves to work with our mistakes, always looking for a new angle and continuing to be curious.
We bounce off each and try our best to work with our intuition.

My love of nature and a wicked sense of humour.
inspired by Martin Wills
I feel that like everyone, I am a collection of billions of experiences and connections. Chance and biology make up a large part. I feel like an infinitely tiny blip in the scheme of things but if anything makes me me it is my impulse to create.
inspired by Rebecca Swainston
Mmmm, I’m not my future nor am I my past what makes me me is the present.

Kindness, consideration of others, loving towards family and friends, encouraged of ambitions and aspirations. Basically I love people and am quite a social animal.

Simply put, where I stand and what I see.
inspired by Richard Harland
An intimate familiarity with my own mortality, knowing that at one point I’m around and at the next I’m not… But that in spite of this, I will always have been.

To answer your question, what makes me, me, is my faith, my comedic nature, my willingness never to give up and my hope in each new day.

inspired by David Fowell
Being true to myself: trying to be kind, creative, tenacious, funny and warm. Trying new things, getting excited about possibilities and ideas. Collaborating. Finding inspiration and connections in other people and music, film, nature, heritage, theatre, art and design. Dipping my toes into new projects. Loving and being loved.
inspired by Kathryn Hinks
As my work deals with language what kind of answer is in order. Art/words and or both.

I suppose a mixture of my parents makes me me, especially my mum’s side which is mostly Irish.
inspired by Germaine Smith
I am a little girl in a 48 year woman’s body. I drink robots tea and ginger. I love chicory and rocket and Ferrero rocher. I like and need my own company but I also like to share with close friends and family. I love dancing and being creative. I shout when I get frustrated and get loud when I am excited. I want to help others and I want to be loved and liked. I often fear that I am not good enough. I worry about making the wrong decisions but I don’t worry as much as I used to. I practice meditation and want to grow spiritually and emotionally. I like beauty and I am in awe of nature. I love my partner, I love intimacy and sex. I am touchy feel you. I cry easily. I am intense and that sometimes frightens people. I become defensive when I feel threatened or caught out in the wrong. I like warmth. I want to be humble but on occasions, I feel that I know better than others and become controlling. I hate this feeling. I worry about my children’s future and I want to make it all better for them but I try to let go and trust that things will work out for the best and they will be fine. But I find it difficult to shake off the sense of responsibility and wanting to make everything better for everyone.

I am an artist.
inspired by KangMa
That’s a difficult question, one’s heritage but I felt I never belonged to where I was raised.
I didn’t grow up surrounded by culture the opposite in fact. My parents died when I was young, my father when I was 14 and my mother after a long period of illness when I was 23. At the age 14 I took over my fathers garage as a studio, partly to be close to his surroundings, he was a carpenter as well as other things. I escaped the council estate at 17 and went to Art school and have been evolved in the arts ever since.
