About me

I am passionate about the way that literature and art have the ability to show a perspective that is wildly different to the onlooker's, in a way which is accessible and immediate. Because of this art is beautiful and necessary. I want to be part of adding to this openness, be it through writing a creative project, or my own artwork.
