What are you up to at the moment-at this minute or generally ?
My daughter is on half term and I’m taking a few days out of the London grind.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I definitely wanted to be creative. I wasn’t sure how I would express it.

What did they represent to you at the time?
Freedom and joie de vivre.

Anywhere, everywhere, visually, linguistically.
Where do you find peace?
Always with my family. I feel safe and secure.

What quality do you most admire in a man?
In what ways has your life turned out as planned?
I’m creatively fulfilled, and loved.

Love and acceptance.

My husband, kids, girlfriends.
