When you were a little kid, did you ever have something that you would draw
over and over? You know, like some kids always draw eyes...
Yeah, eyes actually – and still eyes. When I talk on the phone I always doodle them.
I think it must mean something – something psychological, like soul-searching. I think
the eyes are my favourite part of doing a painting, too.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I’m pretty addicted to Pinterest and I follow a lot of models’ blogs. It’s hard because
I don’t just draw from a photo; I mix one girl’s head with someone else’s hair, and then chuck
a top on her from a different show, and really mix it up. Recently, I started getting into cultural
costumes, too. But if I’m looking for something, it gets typed into the search bar in Pinterest.
Pinterest is the best, but I’ve made some of my boards secret because they’re
a bit embarrassing. Do you have any secret boards?
So many! I created one today for something to wear to opening night. I went
to Zimmerman’s page and pretty much pinned everything – hundreds of them! It’s
all a bit out of my budget though.
Do you spend a lot of time planning what you’re going to wear to these things?
I think it’s always good to look artistic, which sounds pretty wanky but I don’t really want
to blend in. I want to chat to people, if someone buys my pieces I want to know why they
liked it. I think it’s good to be identifiable in the crowd. I think the last one I went to in Perth
I wore a big cherry-blossom headpiece with tassels hanging off it – so it was like ‘Oh yep,
that’s the artist’.
That sounds awesome. Do you have a favourite outfit you’ve worn?
Ooh, that’s so hard. I’m so obsessed with clothes. I bought a Moschino outfit in Italy last month
and wore it to my exhibition in Sydney. It was so fun to wear, it was crazy and very me. And
then, when I got back to Perth, someone showed me a picture of Paris Hilton wearing it. I can
never wear it again! It’s gone to the vintage archives now, will have to be stored for ten years.
