ART AS COURAGE

All my life I have fascinated by those who seem to have the gift and the guts to take what they have been given and make something with it - something more honest, impactful, daring, raw, hopeful and meaningful. Who choose beauty and boldness over fear and judgement.

That's where creators come in. And while I have failed and struggled with many things in my life, I will always strive to be a creator.

THINGS I LOVE (a random list)

chinese takeout, the sea, Marvel films (GotG + Black Panther espesh), tarot cards, drawing, lots of drawing, thunderstorms (especially if I can go run at the time), gaming and long drives with my gorgeous husband, taking photos during golden hour, gemstones, woodland walks with the kiddos,student banter, typologies (9w8 + INFJ right here), anything by Neil Gaiman, my kids belly laughs, His Dark Materials, pretend lightsaber duels, lemon and sugar pancakes, singing badly and unashamedly in the car, mythology, front room dance parties, strawberry cheesecake Haagen-Das ice-cream, those late autumn afternoons that smell like wood smoke and look like liquid gold.

TEACHER ME FACTS

If you are in my classroom during break, lunch or after school know there is a 20% food tax in place - if you bring no offerings you are dead to me.

Leaving middle leadership has left me with the energy to obsess over things I probably shouldn't (but love to) - my classroom organisation, resources and sinks!

Debating Marvel movie plotlines with students is my job guilty pleasure.

I go through playlist obsessions in my classroom, like it or lump it.

WHY CAN'T THEY JUST PUT THE GODDAMN LID BACK ON goes through my
head at least 63 times a day.

"ANY FORM OF ART IS A FORM OF POWER; IT HAS IMPACT, IT CAN AFFECT CHANGE - IT CAN NOT ONLY MOVE US, IT CAN MAKE US MOVE."
