Who are you?
Why do you make your work?
When I really think back I don’t believe I have ever had a choice, but to write and draft, sew and sculpt to try to make tangible an energy, or emotions that don’t seem to have a source but are definitely real.
What do you believe in?
True love, that animals and plants hold the answers, that time is not what it seems.
One thing you say no to?
One thing you say yes to?
Creative challenges ;)
What change would you like to see?
Name one thing that makes you happy?
Being in water as much as possible.
How would you describe your personal routine ?
Coffee, exercise, ideally sit in the yard and write poems and make intentions (rarely have time). I like as much silence as possible in the morning and used to cherish my subway commute in nyc for reading and writing hazy poems but now that has been pushed into spare time...I worship my bath time now and the claw foot tub I never had in NYC so I'd say it's a fair trade.
A vet, a ballerina, both short lived.
Can you remember one solid piece of advice you've gotten for the growth of your work?
I think the best advice I have been given came from my girlfriend. I think knowing me fully, the strengths and the things that hold me back, which can sometimes be the same, she recognized that I needed to simplify, to be fully committed and invested in what I do but not to the point that it is debilitating. To let the work evolve and breathe and not take things so personally.
If you could collaborate with anyone, who would it be?
Who is one person in culture that you feel is making positive and inspiring change ?
