Congratulations on winning Zealous Stories: Print! The Story of Miss Ruby Ribbon collection is delightfully carefree. Could you give us an overview of the brand’s DNA?
Thank you! The DNA of my brand is about being who you truly are, and I believe that our inner child holds the key to authenticity and joy. It’s about trying not to get too lost in the pressures of being an adult and keeping your inner child in your pocket to gain perspective and peace.
Your work is a combination of printmaking, fashion design and storytelling. How do you perceive yourself as an artist?
I think being an artist is about exploration. It’s being free to start any creative process, with the intention of telling stories. Sometimes when you look at artwork you don’t always know why it was made, but I think it’s about how the viewer connects to it. What drives me is a longing to express myself and find a sense of who I am through that expression and a sense of inner peace
