"Who are YOU?" said the Caterpillar.

This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation.

Alice replied, rather shyly, `I...I hardly know, sir, just at present - at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then."

  About Me  

Who am I?

Ahhh... the age old question! But I won't traumatise you with a deep philosophical investigation into it! Instead... let's see...

I am Sri!

What do I do?

I run around in fields of wildflowers singing silly songs and... <scratch that>... apologies...

I'm an artist and designer by trade, and have recently begun to incorporate writing into my work too, both for self and professionally (as you can probably tell from my website :)

Where do I come from?

A good question, and yes I will attempt to answer it.

I was born in Indonesia as my mother was doing field work for her PhD there at the time (she's an anthropologist - not to be confused with the bone picking variety, the archaeologist).

When I was one we went to California, at two we went to England, at three, Holland, at four back to England for a brief stint and by five we were living in Brisbane, Australia.

Yikes that makes me an acronym (as opposed to an anacronym)... a TCK (Third Culture Kid).

I grew up in Brisbane, went to school, tried to be happy there, but eventually the big world outside called me back into the wild.

I went back to London, where my father lived, and stayed there for 11 years. Then I moved to live for a year in the UNESCO World Heritage protected town of Visby, in Sweden (apparently the best preserved medieval town in Scandinavia!), to work in a computer games research studio.

I've been in Brisbane now for a few years, but will spread my wings again soon to fly south, this time to Melbourne.
