Ivy

Originally from Crewe, I moved to Edinburgh at the age of 4 and have lived there almost consistently for the last 18 years.

I’m a passionate writer and performer, an amateur blogger and aspiring drag artist. I love to create riddles, quizzes, and puzzles, while also building fantasy themed adventures for role playing games.

When I’m not working on my blog, I can be found watching anime and movies, as well as reading manga, graphic novels, and comic books. I also enjoy playing video games, ice skating and laser tag.

Since October 2019, I have been participating in the Impact Arts Creative Pathways programme, where I have been carrying out several solo/group activities based in the theatre. These have included creating concept art and pitches for productions, staging small performances and devising a script. As well as this, I have been working with the theatre company Stellar Quines as part of a placement, producing work published on their website.

I graduated last year from the University of Brighton, where I was doing a BA Hons degree in English Literature and Creative Writing.

Much of my previous work has been based in retail, having started from the age of 14 as a volunteer in the Capability Scotland charity shop. I have also done several fundraising events and hosted drag evenings.

I has worked as part of a team, both on my course and during my time at Capability Scotland and the Jewellery Box on Brighton Pier. Whilst at Impact Arts, I do my best to listen to other people’s ideas and suggestions, finding ways to expand and implement them into a final product, something I hope to bring to the Sketchy Youths.

I hope to learn new skills and build on both my confidence and teamwork; I’m also happy to work towards a Community Achievement Award, as it will hopefully help with my search for work after the Creative Pathways course is over.
