Alnwick in Northumberland & Norwich.

Is there a new Girly sensibility in Art?
That’s a tricky one, it’s not something I would really like to pin down. I am really inspired by how it evolves, especially in Karen Kilimnik, Elizabeth Peyton,& Sophie Von Hellermann & I loved Matt Collishaw’s recent show at Modern Art. His epic Magdalena got me on so many levels.

Is it important or irrelevant for women artists to engage with the art world on a political level?

It’s not something I actively think about.

Is your work particularly female or feminine?

I don’t think so.

Do you think little girls are made of sugar and spice and all things nice? Yes
