Helen Turton (from Northampton via Liverpool and Harare) plays the 'cello with a bow and her own fingers (with varying accuracy). She likes bowing. She used to play classical stuff but has now become more hip hop. She sings like a 'cello teacher so therefore she does not sing.
She used to act in a cool band called (check), which satisfied her lesbian angst.
As well as doing the pluckin' she also draws lines made of ink (see website below). And in her spare time she teaches A-Level photography and fills out forms.
