Liz GryllsShe / Her
My name is Liz, and I live in the North East of England in a town called Middlesbrough. In my free time I like to make things, and that’s not really limited to just sewing. I sew, knit, raise plants and children, bake, and cook. When it comes to sewing, I like to make things that reflect my alternative style (don’t we all I guess) and rarely make a pattern as it’s written which I guess is pretty reflective of me and my life. I find I often don’t think like other people do.
What influence does music have in your life as a creative?:
I listen to music constantly (although admittedly I have made room for podcasts in the last couple of years). I’m not sure it influences my creativity but rather goes hand in hand with it. I never met a creative person that didn’t like music. I find it hard to do anything in silence. Music is like some kind of magical lubricant to aid productivity. Need to work? On go the headphones. Need to cook? Music on in the kitchen. Doing some sewing? Find a good album.
Tell us about your playlist:
Music is a huge part of who I am, and for this reason it took me two months after I was invited to do it to get the courage to pull this playlist together, and I’m still not sure it fully says what I want it to but I’m trying not to overthink it.
My tastes are quite eclectic, and in a day I could go from Hair Metal, to Pop Punk, to Down Tempo and Electronica, to Prog Rock, Sludge and Dream Metal to Math Rock and Post Hardcore.
I feel like there’s a massive chunk of my personality (and history) in this playlist. I think a little bit of everything I listen to is represented here. I hope you do a listen and enjoy.
