Funny enough, growing up I wanted to be an artist. I’ve always loved art and science – but art won the tug of war between the two. I think this was because freedom made and continues to make me happy. It took me a while to realise that, but now I style and create and couldn’t be happier. My favourite quote is “Environment everything, heredity nothing” which means where you grew up and your community matters more than blood; one doesn’t have to be blood to be considered family. I have carried this with me always and it permeates through my life and work.
