Brighton Bicycle Portrait

Anushka Tay is a multi-disciplinary artist working across music, costume and writing. 

Her long-standing passion for storytelling has taken her down many paths.

Anushka leads the lyrical, bluesy fusion band Wayward Children, with songwriting partner Francis Botu. Anushka plays the piano, cello, ukulele, and sings. She is dedicated to playing, learning and teaching a range of styles from Bach to the Blues.

Anushka works as a designer-maker, frequently creating costumes and millinery for stage, screen, editorial and events. In June 2012 she graduated with First Class Honours in BA (hons) Costume with Performance Design, from the Arts University College at Bournemouth.

Anushka blogs about sewing at Tailoring Tales; and about concepts and clothes at Dress Me Up, Drag Me Out. The archive of her old blog is also available.

Anushka’s writing & work has been published in Pom Pom Quarterly (issues 6 & 7), Fat Quarter, Knit on the Net, and the Zealous.co blog.

In September 2015 she begins MA Fashion Cultures at London College of Fashion. Through this pathway, she hopes to publish more work in the future.
