1. What do you do when you’re not making art? (Day job etc...).

I work as Artist Relations Manager at AllArtWorks. I also help produce our physical shows.

2. Why do you make art?

I’m not sure, I enjoy it, there’s a sense of freedom when I do it that I don’t experience elsewhere.

3. What inspires you?

I like traveling - I haven’t done much of that lately but it’s something that inspires me.

4. What/who are your influences?

My artist friends are my greatest influence for sure, without them I might not be painting.

5. If you could meet anyone dead or alive who would it be?

I would love to meet Gustave Courbet and Caravaggio. Also Ricky Gervais.
