Amy Guy

Artist and Maker

I’m an artist and jewellery maker with far too many creative interests. Living in the Scottish countryside with my husband and goldador pup, originally from the East Midlands, UK. I love to sew simple clothes for myself, mend and remake, paint and play with fire and metal. I’m constantly inspired by colour, texture and the world around me. I spend as much time as I can in my home studio enjoying my own little world.

What influence does music have in your life as a creative?:

I think music is an integral part of my creative process. It lifts my mood, helps my focus, calms me down and sparks inspiration for me. I love to shut myself in my studio and put on music to suit my mood, then immerse myself in my creative projects for the day. I often feel like my paintings can become a kind of collaboration with the music I’m listening to. As a highly sensitive introvert, music can deeply influence how I’m feeling and I have developed an eclectic mix of go-to sounds.

Tell us about your playlist:

This playlist has been a long term project for me (hence it being pretty lengthy), I like to add things little by little, and I often use Shazam to discover the things I’m really drawn to. It is a mix of a few different things but I would say there is an overall theme of chilled, ambient, upbeat and soothing sounds. A lot of the songs are without lyrics or have minimal voice samples, there are some reggae, soul, hip-hop and psychedelic influences which I have always been really drawn too. I just love a good beat. So yeah, hope you enjoy!
