My name is Ellie. I’m 25. I grew up on a Scottish island and now live in the city. I’m an artist, a writer, sister, daughter, partner, dog mum, bisexual, feminist, vegetarian. I also care for my father who has Parkinsons, and support my mum to care for him.
Three things in my bag
Three objects on my shelf
Stuff I need to care for my dad when he visits
A picture of me and my Dad
The wherewithal to be creative
Something I am waiting for
To be able to go back to the island where my parents are, and to give them a hug
Objects I would rescue in a fire
A thing which marks a threshold in my life
Being far from my island
A ritual I can’t
Morning tea and a phone chat with my mum.
