Can you tell us a little bit about your background? The journey you took to be where you are and what you're doing at the moment?
Why do I breathe? To live. I create to live and because I don't know what else I would do if I didn't do it. It's what keeps me going.
Where do you look for inspiration? Who or what inspires you?
In the city, in the forest, by the sea. I more and more search for inspiration in my surroundings rather than looking at other people's work.
There is always a certain moment when I panic, when I think I'm not going to make it. For every job I do, this moment gets shorter. It helps to zoom out of myself look at myself and my situation from the distance where everything looks so smaller and easier.
What are the most rewarding and most difficult parts of your work as an artist and your creative life in general?
Most rewarding: When I'm feeling satisfied with the result and have had fun on my way there. Even better if my client is satisfied too. Most difficult: To believe in myself all the way, there is always a time of doubt.
I would like to run a café with my husband, but he says he wouldn't let me because if I'm pissed everyone sees it. So I'd better hide in my studio and just visit cafés instead ;)
