The moment when you are at a party (for example) and someone asks: ‘What do you do?’ You say, ‘I’m an artist.’ Can you remember when that moment first happened for you and tell us about it?

When I mention that I work in film or as a painter at a party it always creates a lot of interest, it makes people curious. People often ask about my work and it’s never an unpleasant experience, the same goes for my work as a painter. It always creates an interest, people wanting to take a look at my work, so I’m fine with that.

Do you have any rituals or routines to help the creative process?

Yes, definitely, I need to make me a nice hot pot of tea, which I’ll be sipping while working. Tea to me is like Zen, it calms me down and helps me focus on myself, which is a good start for working! And then I start with just one step, be it to paint a little detail and from there I’ll develop the next steps.

What was the best piece of advice you were given?

Firstly to be independent from the judgement of others, to not care whether or not your work is considered as “good art“ but to go on making art anyway. Secondly to constantly look carefully at your own work and at other artists’ work, look for what appeals to you and then develop that further.
