What is your favourite outlet from your diverse creative practice and why?
I love exploring the different mediums with which I can tell a story, this is why my practice is so varied. One of my fave outlets is making stuff; costumes, puppets, masks, a spaceship out of a plastic bottle and a sparkler, that kind of innovation really gets me going. Oh and dancing, I lurvvvve dancing!
For those yet to watch your short film Bystro, explain to audiences what they are in for?
A very tasteful porn…
What was your inspiration behind this film?
It is a satirical statement on the fast consuming, superficial dating culture.
What other projects are you currently working on?
I just wrapped a film directed by the talented Minka Bleakly. I played the lead and my fresh little 4 month old son also made an appearance. Now that I’m a mum, I am working on a kids TV show version of ‘Zap’, with my partner Will and our Greek guru, Petros. I am also about to release a sunglass collection I co-designed with the fabulous Fritz Frames.
