What do you find most fascinating about the creative process?
Lately, I’ve been increasingly interested with subtlety, wether it be in a gesture or an object. But I have an on-going fascination with people and spaces, and of course, colour.
A few words about your favourite creation?
I’m terribly self-deprecating when it comes to my own work, so generally my favourite creation would of been the most recent, until I inevitably dislike it for a multitude of reasons. But if I had to choose, ‘Girl on Fancy Stool’ or ‘Bathtime in Blue’ captured a certain atmosphere. It lies somewhere between vibrant and melancholy. Something I think we all have within us, like two sides of the same coin.
Someone else’s work that inspired or inspires you…
Picasso, Matisse, Hockney, Gauguin.
A new project coming up or an idea you want to work on?
New projects I can’t really say, but I’m always cultivating new ideas and my approach.

Bike ride down the canal, coffee in one of it’s many fine cafes, buy some Art supplies from Fred Aldous, a quick look at pretty things in Colours May Vary (Shop/Gallery), food and a beer in Bundobust (Indian Street Food/Craft Beer) and maybe then maybe to Wharf Chambers (Co-operative bar/events space) or Brudenell Social Club for any one of the amazing gigs they put on.
