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

Worry less about what other people think. It is your journey and the most important thing is to stay true to yourself and follow your dream. Anything is possible if you want it enough.

What are you excited about right now?                                                               

I'm expecting my first child in August. Running a business and planning a family is a challenge, and one that I am excited to embark on.

What advice would you give to women starting in the art world?                  

Don't be afraid to take a few risks along the way, and expect a few bumps in the road before you reach a place where you feel confident that you are making the right decisions. The art world can be very fickle and incredibly competitive, so surround yourself with a strong network of people that will help you along the way.
