A minute with Evie Cleanthous Painter


Where do you live?

Best childhood memory?
I remember running in the open fields

Most frequented restaurant and absolute favourite dish? What food would you really turn your nose up to?
I’m an easy going person, I like everything

What did you have for breakfast?
I enjoy breakfast; I eat oats or cereal and toast with jam

Would you class yourself as a day or night person? What’s your idea of the perfect night/day out?
A day person for sure; I have very good friends and we meet often.

Best book ever read?
I read all the time, I’ve read many books but I love to paint even more.

Favourite film of all time?
I have seen so many I can’t remember, but I prefer romantic films.

Favourite holiday destination?
We used to travel a lot in the past, to Greece or other European countries with good friends but now I mostly visit destinations in Cyprus.

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
All kinds

What is always in your fridge?
I’m not picky, I like just about everything so there is not something I particularly prefer over others.

Dream house: rural retreat or urban dwelling? Where would it be, what would it be like?
I enjoy nature; I live in the city but I do love nature and going to the sea and the mountains.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
I would like to meet with a famous painter.

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
I’d do my cross and wait!

What is your greatest fear?
I’d say death but I have no such fears. The most important thing is to be healthy until the end of my life. Health is the most important thing.
