Favourite artist of all time: Goya has been my favourite for a very long time but now I would say he’s tied with Francis Bacon.
Favourite artwork of all time: So hard to narrow down to one however I have such a vivid memory of the first time I saw ‘Blue Poles’ by Jackson Pollock at the National Gallery of Australia. I was completely mesmerised by it.
Favourite pastime/ hobbies: Anything outside and preferably near the water, hot yoga and reading fiction.
