Hello I'm Olivia, also known as INKA. I'm a songwriter, photographer and bullet journal addict.
Sitting at my friend's kitchen table in Edinburgh in the frosty early months of 2013, I picked up a pen and wrote a list of new monikers for my solo music project. INKA was the one that stuck.
Since then I've studied literature, lived in Canada, worked in music PR, moved to London, all the while writing, taking photos and making music.
I'm currently creating my debut EP, and am really excited to share as much of the process as I can with you. If you're impatient and want to hear my music, like, now, then hop over to my Soundcloud or Youtube channel.
In June 2017 I decided to go "third time lucky" on blogging, having already had a street style blog in Edinburgh and a hilariously TMI online journal in Toronto. I'd been feeling a bit lost and directionless in regards to my creative pursuits and music, and as a self-proclaimed multipotentialite, I knew I had to find a way to marry my interests as one great big project I could nourish and grow with.
I call it Finding INKA, as INKA is the name under which I've been creating music for the last four years, and has become a kind-of alter ego for me. This blog is my way of finding her brilliance daily and channeling it in my everyday life. Expect posts on songwriting, travel, photography, creativity, self-improvement and journalling.
