What is your favourite time of the day, or the year, and why?
«My favourite time of the day would be after the sun has set, I enjoy it when it’s dark outside and you can see the night sky, and the time of the year would be around Christmas. I like the winter season and the festive period is always a good occasion to spend time with your family and friends».
What are your main visual inspirations?
«Anything I can find that makes me dream».
Does music have an impact on your art, and how?
«I think it does to an extent, with the pace to which I do work and on my stress level».
Name three things in your childhood that made you the artist you are now.
«Very unoriginal but pencil and paper, and I guess living in the countryside».
What is your favourite mood, and why?
«Nostalgia. I just love that moment you get a smell, an image or an element that reminds you of a good moment in your life. I feel like it brings back a piece of magic from then into the present moment».
Do you have a muse? Not necessarily a person.
«Not that I can think of».
What is your worst fear, and does it show in your art?
«Probably being alone, as in ‘last person on earth’ kind of alone. Humans are social beings, I think you would go crazy being alone for the rest of your life without anyone to interact with. I don’t think it shows in my art though, does it?»
Three fashion designers you would love to work with.
«I’ll be way out of my league here, but probably Lela Rose, Elie Saab, and Olivier Rousteing».
Social networks: things you love, things you hate.
«What I love is the feeling of proximity and interaction with the people, it’s nice to have their feedback and chat with them in a laid-back environment. What I hate is the spamming you get with it, people contacting you to ask if you want to buy advertising space or followers, or if you can check their profile and follow them, it can get annoying».
