Tell me about your art. What kind of work do you do on your own?
Music, drawing, I’ve been drawing for a long time. I’ve taken years and years of pottery. For a while I was teaching pottery on the wheel, and the pottery studio that Sketch runs, at the brickworks.
Right now, I just got a Cue grant to do an album, I’m really excited about it. I really had to ask myself what I’m meant to be doing in this life, why I’m here. I’m a healer, and all my clients come to be with emotional issues. It seems like all of their emotional issues come down to these little core things. I’ve found processes that I use to help people move through that stuff, but I want to help more people move through their issues. I thought music was a great way to do that. I’m working on the first track today.
