Tell us a little about yourself, your practice, your processes…
I’m a new mum, Bodhi is almost 12 weeks old and he feels like my best creation yet!!
I’ve been creating art for as long as I remember and I love it, it fuels me. Over the years my creations have really changed and merged and right now I am drawn to a lot of vibrant colours and abstract work. When I create I meditate, I am in the present moment, with my breath, focus and what needs to be expressed.
What are you working on at the moment?
At the moment I am working on a new collection of jewellery.
Describe a typical workday – whatever that means for you.
There is nothing typical about my days currently- looking after a baby and squeezing in art is very spontaneous. When I get some free time I go for it!
What inspires you to create?
Life. Nature. Experience.
What’s the best piece of advice you have ever received?
Take a risk.
