Immersed in the muted colours and strong light of a North East Scottish landscape, I grew up in the depths of nature and free to roam. The landscape first opened up my senses, to light, land and the deep thrum of the wild things. I studied visual art and for a while this was a focus for imagination and experiments. My ear was accustomed to dialects: from Shetland (my mum) Geordie (dad) and 'the Doric' of the NE of Scotland, accents redolent of land and farming, the weather. I started singing

Moving to the city meant being submerged in an intensified soundscape, ‘body’ substituted for ‘land’ and vocal work became an extension of this space-making. The study of vocal technique, a training in voice movement therapy, singing and performance research have cross-fertilised with other creative and contemplative practices to underpin my coaching, teaching and research - and a creative urge that sprawls over many areas and media and has proved impossible to contain.
