I have over 20 years’ experience working within the arts and creative industry in Wales. I have an MA in Film Producing from the University of South Wales and am also the current Chair of Trustees of Community Music Wales. My full time role is as Chief Executive of Tanio. Two of the short films I produced have been nominated for BAFTA Cymru awards. My latest filmTime and Again is a LGBT love story starring Dame Sian Phillips and Brigit Forsythe. Time and Again has (at time of wiring) been accepted into over 50 festival across the world, winning many awards.
I love dogs, especially my pug staffy cross, Lola and the family dog, Bryn!
What advice do you have for people to bringing creativity into everyday life?
Allow some time for yourself to do something that brings you some joy. As a film producer it will come as no surprise I love film and TV, I love a Sunday afternoon watching a feel good film. Also creativity isn’t always about art in the traditional sense. You can be creative decorating a room, or framing some family photos. Maybe going on a walk and thinking fo a shot poem just for yourself.
What is your number one self-care tip?
Get outside! Not matter what the weather a walk (alone, with a friend or a dog 🙂 ) will always help clear the cobwebs. Be in the moment, look at the nature around you
