Dr Myles-Jay Linton is a Bristol-based psychologist, artist and facilitator.

In 2019 Myles was awarded a Vice Chancellors Fellowship at the University of Bristol where he leads a programme of research into young peoples’ mental health.

Myles’ creative practice is informed by his work as a psychologist and involves using figurative illustration to explore the connections between our thoughts and emotions with our bodies. Recent projects have involved experimenting with neon glass, audio recording and set/stage design. Myles will use the residency to explore new ways of combining his academic research with his creative practice.
