You grew up in London and then you came to New York, did living between the two cities influence your work or give you a different perspective?
Perhaps. One of the most noticeable things it that London is more, in some respects, authentic but I knew that it would be harder to actually maintain myself and be able to pay for living in London. Even the few jobs I was doing in London were just- I don’t know how I was supposed to survive. Definitely moving to New York allowed me to be self-sufficient. It was like a fresh start. New experiences, new city, new things. In that respect it was very inspiring because I was surrounded by all this newness.
