Interview

What is your ideal office?

 

A bungalow with an ocean view, in a warm place with a lot of light. Cozy and tropical and surrounded by palm trees.

 

What city owns your heart?

 

Los Angeles.

 

What idea has made a remarkable impression on you?

 

If you can’t change the situation, change your attitude.

 

How would you like to be remembered?

 

As one who was kind and strong, who took care of her own, and who people loved being around. As a good person.

 

What is your most treasured belonging?

 

My headphones, I’m always listening to music. I can’t live without it.

 

What is one career highlight that sticks out to you?

 

My first time in cinema.

 

If you did something different for a living, what would it be?

 

I would be a Formula One pilot like one of my heroes, Ayrton Senna.

 

When have you made the wrong decision?

 

Probably many times, but I believe that success is not only achieved from triumph, but from failing. If you don’t give up, you learn even more. Success is the doing and the learning not the getting or regretting.

 

What grosses you out?

 

Lies. 

 

Who would you come back as in your next life? 

 

Boris Vian. 

 

How would you describe your artistic practice? 

 

Jazzy. 

 

What has inspired you lately? 

 

I’ve discovered that I get inspired if I keep my eyes open to everything that surrounds me and never stop being curious. I always want to take advantage if I feel inspired, because you don’t feel that way all the time. 

 

Would it bother you if people saw you as a model first, and an artist second?
 

It wouldn’t bother me, but I don’t really consider myself a model. I did some modeling, however apart from my artwork, my real passion is acting. I’ve been doing it from a very early age. I was a child actor, I’ve stopped for a few years but I’m back on acting. 

 

What is essential to staying creative? 

 

Being in the moment. 

 

Who has had the biggest impact on your development as an artist?
 

Viktor Vauthier. 

 

All your collages feature lips, are there any other reccurring themes in your work?
 

Yes, there are others. I’ve loved doing collages since I was a little girl, but at the time I didn’t really find my style. I love the lips, so I continued working on them more and more, and then it became my signature.
