If you were to give advice to your younger self, what would it be?               

STOP UNDERESTIMATING YOURSELF AND CAPACITY. FOR GOD’S SAKE LET PEOPLE KNOW WHAT YOU ARE CAPABLE OF. 

Which 3 qualities do you think one must have to succeed?                                 

In this particular field, one should be thick skinned yet approachable and diplomatic depending on the circumstances. 

Always be curious and try to see and read as much as possible. 

Take advantage of the opportunities that are presented to you, never take anything for granted. 

Which female artist, living or dead, would you invite to a fantasy dinner party and why?                                                                                                       

Rebecca Horn. Not just because her diverse body of work are so avantgarde of her time but also because she seems like she would be someone extremely interesting to talk to. Following the physical experience of her performances with body extensions, masks and feather objects of the 1970s came the first kinetic sculptures featured in her films such as The Feathered Prison Fan, which I admire.
