If I asked your closest friend to describe you in three words what would they say?
Resilient. Creative. Funny.
Have you always been creative or did you find your ‘flow’ with it later in life?
Crushed art. Failed French at school, say no more! Discovered yoga ten years ago which segued into a consistent art practice. Both now keen me ‘sane’ and in flow.
Favourite part of Sydney and why?
Camp Cove, Watsons Bay. Vivid memories of spending summers with kids there and Watsons Bay is where I would live if I ever win Lotto.
Spring in London. Expat Skye Gyngell serves up seasonal produce grown on a biodynamic farm. Elegant simplicity.
If you weren’t making art what would you be doing?
I would study to be an art therapist. It’s a wonderful combination to support healing.
Right now it’s not eating Tim Tams during the Fat Loss Forever Program!
What lights you up above anything else right now?
How when pushed out of our comfort zones we become so adaptable and supportive in unexpected ways. The human race rises to unite in compassion and on a more personal level my daughter, who has special needs, has such a dedicated group of support carers who are selflessly, genres and have risen to the occasion to support her 24/7. I am thankful every day.
Are there any silver linings to spending most of your time isolated and indoors at the moment?
Being a serial procrastinator, I am surprising myself by how motivated being in isolation has made me. The online classes that Flow are offering are a sanity saviour. I also think we are giving the universe a healthy reprieve allowing it to rejuvenate and heal.
Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest?
David Attenborough — relatable, infatigable re climate change and compelling.
