"My work is the place where I have fun. It’s fairytale and fiction. Contradiction. Fashion, nature, emotion…without being too serious. I look at alot of ‘content’. Anything, anywhere, anytime…books, blogs, magazines, a face, colours, nature, cheap bits and bobs, the shop front window at Bergdorf. The alarming quality of Surrealism and of course Roald Dahl who has been a good friend for as long as I can remember. I love the challenge of my work and without it I’d be lost."
