My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Why stay between the lines?

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. I would like an hour as my dog. Just to see what it's like to run at 30mph. I like being me though.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Here at home in my studio, but with maybe another cup of tea.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Lateness. I'm the kind of person that's always early to everything. I spend a lot of time hanging around in in the cold being too early for trains/meetings/friends/parties etc. That's one of the reasons I find lateness so irritating. When you're normally half an hour early, and everyone else is half an hour late it means a whole hour of waiting. Grrrr.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. That would be really really boring! But I do love baked beans on toast, with cheese on the top.
