What did you have for breakfast this morning?
So many things. The Ratt Soup was amazing.
What are you working on at the moment?
Lots of designs for paintings and tattoos. Putting together a scrap book of all my drawings, so I can pick the good ones for bigger pieces. I’m writing a punk record.
What inspires you to create?
My family & friends.
What kind of reaction do you want your art to evoke?
I just want it to inspire people to do their own thing and try to be original.
What are you working on for the Emergence Creative Festival this year?
We have a group of young tattoo artists coming to do some big installations on the opening night.
Where will we see you and your work throughout the Emergence Creative Festival?
In the court yard next to the Cultural Centre. I’ll be doing an art installation in there.
