MARTHA JULIAN Assistant Director   Martha moved from Plymouth to Leeds in 2003 and worked as an Administrator at the University of Leeds. In 2011 she volunteered at Thought Bubble, helping to set up the halls. In return she was given a weekend ticket and was completely blown away by all the incredible work on show, and all the lovely people. She contacted Lisa to ask if there was any work going. She brought Martha in to help with a few bits, and eight years later she’s still here and loving every minute. In her spare time she sings in an electro pop band, and hangs out with her excellent baby.

AMY BELLWOOD Sponsorship & Funding Manager   Amy started working at Thought Bubble in May 2018 and loves doing something new every time she comes into work. She previously worked at Leeds College of Art and fully believes that art should be for everyone. Outside of Thought Bubble Amy keeps several humans alive and is learning pottery, one wobbly pot at a time. Amy feels super awkward talking about herself in third person.

CHLOE GREEN Festival Administrator   Chloe migrated to Leeds from darkest South Yorkshire 12ish years ago. Brand new to Thought Bubble, but with a life long love of illustration, she is looking forward to getting stuck into comic book life. Chloe is a big fan of dark, satirical work or anything post-apocalyptic and is currently reading The Walking Dead in German, in an attempt to learn the language. Outside of TBF, Chloe plays around with pattern making and screen printing textiles but mostly you'll find her riding her bike, walking her best pal, Eva, and drinking many, many black coffees.
