Q: what’s your favourite medium?
A: I really enjoy using ink and pencil. I also like acrylic paints, although I’ll never use them willingly if/when I paint a self portrait.
Q: where do you look for inspiration?
A: Instagram or Pinterest mainly! I follow lots of really beautiful accounts which provide me with lots of ideas.
Q: what’s your favourite subject?
A: i like to make works of portraits and figures, but I normally try and avoid self portraits if I can help it.
Q: what’s the big deal with self portraits?
A: I find that I tend to paint what I’d like to see instead of what I actually see. Heheh 😇
Q: would you rather paint an a1 sized piece or an a3 sized piece?
A: a1 definitely! The bigger the better. There’s more room for creativity and expression and it’s easier to fine-tune the details.
Q: most stunning piece of work you’ve ever seen?
A: 18 year retrospective ‘universal collection’ exhibition – sacha jafri, the saatchi gallery
