I typically fall out of bed. To be honest, working in the studio every day is pretty messy, so I tend to wear a rotation of jeans and jumpers. I am lucky enough to have a very good spread of Chinti Essentials which tends to do the trick (that is not a plug, I have been a fan of the brand since they started and I really do buy at least one new ‘Essential’ sweater every season so I don’t have to worry about not having my literal uniform to hand. In the winter I will sometimes wear one on top of another.
After dropping the kids at school, I head straight to Highgate Ladies' Pond. I try not to miss a day. I am slightly one of those mad zealots with full neoprene kit. It is a proper routine involving a flask of sweet tea afterwards.
Then I head to my studio where I stay all day. I would say that my practice is centered around painting but heavily influenced by textiles. This isn’t surprising given I was a fashion designer for 15 years before doing my MA in Fine Art Painting at Slade School of Art in 2016.
