Where do you live?
I live in Cyprus, north of Paphos @ Kallepia with my husband
Best childhood memory?
Wintertime with St Nicolaus in front of the fireplace!!
Would you class yourself as day or night person?
I am a day person, but sometimes night or evenings can be very nice with lovely sunsets.
What is your favourite night out?
Nice concerts or a lovely romantic movie
Best book ever read?
Book about Yoga – The Path to Holistic Health by BKS Iyengar. Yoga is an important part of my life – it reconnects with the spirit and is the foundation of my life
Favourite film of all time?
The Charlie Chaplin movies because they are full of joy and creativity. For him to create such a character is wonderful
Favourite holiday destination?
Possibly was in North Pakistan, The Karakorum or Silk Route where I have since recreated many scenes in my paintings
What music are you listening to in the car.
If possible classical music, or some time also jazz. I always play music in my studio to paint, the two things are entwined
Dream house: rural retreat or urban dwelling? Where would it be, what would it be like?
I prefer a rural retreat with a lot of sunshine! Where I live now in Cyprus is almost perfect
If you could pick anyone at all(alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
First of all it would be my husband. Why? since I know him so well.
If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
I cannot answer that question. Very very sad.
Tell me a joke
I’m sorry I don’t do jokes in English – my husband is the master of jokes
