Q+A

I'm really good at making (a) ...

Stretchers and Ukrainian beet buns!

Favourite book

Always the last book I've read.

What do you listen to when you work?

When I work I listen to either the radio or classic rock. It varies depending on my mood. Usually if I'm working on a piece I'll listen to an entire album on repeat.

Why is art important to you?

It can be anything and everything. There are no boundaries but the ones you choose for yourself.
