I taught myself to sing and write songs as an experiment to see how far I could go with an activity I had always thought I couldn’t do. The experience has taught me that we can approach a subject we gave up when young with fresh insights years later with the benefit and influence of our life experiences.

It has also taught me about the relationship between expertise and inexperience, the value in ‘beginnings’ and in ‘not knowing.

Creating with musicians has enabled me to learn more about sharing creative ideas, collaboration and improvisation which have all strengthened my teaching and influenced my digital art.
