Where can you be found?


Tell us about a creative action you have taken this week.

I managed to disconnect from everything for an hour on the edge of a busy road in the sunshine.

What does ‘home’ mean to you? 

Feeling safe and surrounded by items that have a dialogue with my life, thoughts, memories, loves, values and family past.

What was the last thing you drew?

A geometric array of flowers.

Tell us about 2 of your most subtle influences.

The Never Ending Story & something my aunt once said to me when I was very young, before she died, very young.

Please share your thoughts / a few words about your expectations of the SqW:Lab fellowship, of being in Mumbai and the project in total.

I have wanted to visit Mumbai my whole life, to experience its urban intensity and dense life is something that I can barely imagine, and am utterly beyond thrilled to see how I might be able to try and understand and see (really, see) a small part of it, in my own way, and maybe, hopefully, turn those observations, impressions, thoughts or feelings into words and lines, colours and formal fragments.
