What did you have for breakfast?
I had anari cheese with honey and my Freddo Cappuccino.

Describe your perfect day
Hmm… Early morning at the beach for a swim and later in the day in my studio with a cocktail, loud music and I leave the rest to my art!

Best book ever read?
Still Life with Woodpecker by Tom Robbins because it is a well written book and it took me to magical places

Trips to the mountains on Sunday mornings with my family! The best part was the hiking in the nature trails.

Milk, can’t do coffee without my milk!

80s & 90s music
