I feel most creatively fulfilled when... I am throwing myself into creating new designs and sculptures and seeing where the process takes me naturally, both mentally and physically.
I'm currently working on... finalising my jewellery and accessories collection for Paris showroom sales as well as creating sculpture commissions.
This time last year, I wish I knew... that cutting my hair short would make me feel incredibly liberated!
I'm grateful for... my family, my boyfriend and the ocean.
