Jessica Ruth Morris
Programme Manager: Arts & Health & Special Projects
I’m a professional singer and saxophonist and studied at Cardiff Uni that feels like a million years ago! Since leaving uni I have been a full time professional singer and choir leader, specialising in running group singing to improve people’s health and well being. I am so excited to be in this new role at Tanio as it’s a chance to really bring my love of the Arts and my passion for the Arts improving people’s health and wellbeing together!
I love dogs and have a 7 month old puppy called Brenin who is cute, but an absolute tyrant. I am a very crafty person – I’m good at knitting, tapestry, and dress making. I am also in a vintage 1940s Andrews’ Sisters’ vocal trio called The J Birds which I love, because we get to glam up in that classic war time way!
What advice do you have for people to bringing creativity into everyday life?
In my experience, most people don’t think of themselves as ‘creative’, but creativity is in everything we do! From devising games to keep a toddler entertained for a couple of hours, right through to being the next Picasso! Being creative can take courage, so be brave and go for it! Little and often is always best.
What is your number one self-care tip?
Self-care is different for everyone. For me, it’s planning in time to slob out and eat chocolate in front of my favourite programmes.
What is your favourite gif / If you were a gif, what gif gif would you be?
