Childhood dream?

I liked computers and wanted to become a hacker. seriously.

What do you find interesting in the fashion world at the moment?

That the 90s are back and pretty girls try to look as ugly as possible.

Biggest inspiration?

Tracey Emin

Any guilty pleasures?

Beyonce and Ciara.

And sniffing terpentine once in a while when I make paintings. A wonderful smell.

Favourite travel destination?

Cape Town! I am going back there this week for a couple of months. It is a beautiful place and has the best avocadomint milkshake in the whole world.

What are your plans for the future?

Live in london with a cat and make art, during winter live in LA doing the same.

And maybe trying not to eat pizza every day.
