The best thing is knowing even when soaked through with rain on the coast or frustrated with a painting, that it is my job. And that's pretty cool. The worst thing is the financial unpredictability.
Artists and scientists past and present who pushed the boundaries of their age, and continue to do so. They are individuals changing our view of the world, sometimes just one person. We all have potential to be that person.
Q4. If you weren’t in your profession, what would you do?
I'd never want to go back to my old rat race work, so I'd choose to go back and do my PhD in Shakespeare textual studies and then publishing.
At 14 I spent a summer collating instruction manuals at Bally Pinball.
Nikola Tesla. I think it'd be a crazy but inspiring conversation.
A water bottle, my Kobo, and a polar bear sculpture by Christine Close.

My specific brand of bristle brushes
Q10. What would you do if you were given £1 million today?
