When did you decide to become an artist?
My granddad suggested it when I was a toddler and it kind of stuck. It has always been there for me in some way.
What do you find most fascinating about your work?
The silence and peace of mind I get once I’m able to focus on work. Also being constantly able to form ideas in my mind and give them shape.
A few words about your favourite creation?
I really enjoyed my recent project, Seven Wives, which had an interesting balance between sculpture, installation and performance – all of which are mediums that I’m exploring.
Someone else’s work that inspired or inspires you…
Many, at the moment I’m thinking about Bernini’s work a lot. I’m also a big fan of Frederico Campanga’s book, Technic and Magic.

A desert land with a combination ancient/futuristic civilisations.
