What gets you jazzed up these days?
The atmosphere, jewelry and amazing costumes of Walerian Borowczyk’s “Blanche”, learning how to make my own soaps, everything astrology wise, images of the late 19th- early 20th century of women with looong curly hair, like Cléo de Mérode or Lucien-Victor Guirand de Scévola’s silky smooth paintings or in Jessie M King and Aubrey Beardsley fairy illustrations, ways of finding peace of mind.
If you were a piece of clothing, what would you be and why?
A long white dress with fine embroidery and loose sleeves, similar with the Victorian ones, but less stiff, just perfect on the body, giving the wearer the freedom of dancing like a nymph on the top of a hill with some sort of Kate Bush meets Isadora Duncan moves.
What is your interdisciplinary dream project?

What are the perks of working in Eastern Europe?
