What’s the biggest problem you encounter when managing money for your business?
I am not brilliant at budgeting at all. I’ve been working hard to improve this in the past year — costing prints and trying to be more systematic about how and when I produce new work. Sometimes though, I have an idea for something and I just have to make it and hope others will like it too, so I can recoup costs!
What and who inspires your work?
I’m inspired by so many things, it’s hard to narrow it down. Plants (obviously!) and the incredible work of the people at Peace Direct are certainly top of the list. And many, many artists. I adore David Hockney and the way he continues to reinvent his art. I saw the Basquiat exhibition today, and now love him even more than I did before — I am super inspired by the energy in his work. Grayson Perry, Phyllida Barlow, Barbara Hepworth, Agnes Martin, Paula Rego; this list could be really long.
How do you switch off when you’re not working or side hustling?
I find it tricky to fully switch off — relaxing is not my forte — but spending time with my husband and daughter exploring London’s many parks is a wonderful distraction from work. I also love going to exhibitions and having long, lazy dinners with friends.
