We’ve had a number of new followers around here since lockdown so we thought it was a great opportunity to introduce ourselves to new faces and give familiar ones a chance to get to know us and our roles a little better.
Next up is our manager Jane, who has been working with us since July 2018.
I’m the Arts Development Manager and it’s my role to head up the Arts Team, to look after the Arts Council and to work with all our artists and creatives to develop and promote the arts. I also currently line manage the Youth Arts Centre on Kensington Road.
I’ve been passionate about the arts all my life. When this role came along, I absolutely knew it was the job for me! I love every day of it and all the different and interesting challenges it brings. We have an amazing Arts Team and I feel really privileged and lucky to work with such brilliant people.
I am constantly surprised by the wide ranging and exceptional talent this Island produces – it is exceptional in every way. Every week – often daily – we find ourselves saying “wow” at a new project or work!
I think that people believe that Arts Council only deal with the highbrow side of the arts, and they couldn’t be more wrong when it comes to the Isle of Man Arts Council. Anything creative goes!

Weekends are family time for me – and I love getting out into the countryside to walk or ride my bike. South Barrule is my favourite spot!
