1. If I wasn’t an artist I would be a a traveler looking what is
behind the mountains.

2. My worst habit is pouring the teacup too full, but I am good
at balancing through the parlour to my painting table.

3. I am in love with hands around a creeping thyme tea cup on a
walk outside in a cold weather.

4. Who/what inspires you?
Inspiration comes through the ever changing weather, which touches everything and travels over the world telling stories as a sound of the wind or drops of rain.

5. What is your biggest accomplishment to date?
All the works are as important. From all I learned, all them I enjoyed.

6. What is your biggest fear?
That there won´t be anymore snowy winters. It is important for the plants we have here up North and also for many animals as they might need to sleep over the winter under snow to get some strength for the next spring and summer to breed and bloom again.

7. If you could have superpowers, what would it be?
To see as far as to the next universe, but just a peek, a tiny one.
