What would you say has been your biggest challenge along the way?
Some of my biggest challenges have arisen from imposter syndrome and doubting my own capabilities. I would also say finding time for myself has been a real challenge. There’s an intricate balance at play, juggling a few things the way I do – I sometimes forget to nurture my own creative practice and completely halt on research and seeking inspiration.
If you could pick three things that you’ve found useful or inspiring to your work, what would they be and why?
Music is a massive inspiration to me, usually when I start working on a project. I’ve already started a new playlist for it and continue adding to it, up until it takes on its final form.
Something I’ve found super-useful is just having a few notebooks on the go. I tend to have at least two: one with work notes and one with inspiration and ideas. I also tend to create a reading list in the latter.
I also find the people I surround myself with inspiring. Without a great support system, I wouldn’t feel emboldened to keep creating and producing more work.
