Is being an artist your only job?
Who has had most influence on your work?
My mum. She was always my harshest critic and always made me question my work and its qualities. Although I have now learnt to judge my work on my own values she opened my eyes to looking at my work objectively.
What item of design / craft do you covet most?
Lalique glass from the Art Nouveau period. Any of it is stunningly beautiful and I can spend a long time in the V&A museum looking at the glassware there.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?
Right where I am in Hertfordshire. Close to the galleries and shops in London, but also in the beautiful English countryside that I paint. I wouldnt mind moving the sun closer to me here though....
Where and what is your studio?
A purpose built north facing extension on the back of my house with big windows and a roof light.
