The Vigilante Dillah Tanty

Hello! I'm J*M*A and this is my blog page


Noun: a person who cultivates an area of interest, such as the arts, without real commitment or knowledge. 


a person with an amateur interest in the arts.

This blog is about the many aspects of my life which I don't always talk about as an artist but which are vitally important to me as a person (and therefore as an artist). Subjects might include:

Being ADHD

trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle;

being Vegan;

living in Bristol, UK;

places I go, things I see;

films, tv and books I like (Die Hard);

how I am turning a former hobby (music making) into a full time  job.

I also like trains. 

If that sounds good then stick around or follow me on insta!
