Quick fire questions

Favourite word?  Rumbustious.
Food or drink choice when working to deadline?  Chocolate, tea.
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Tangled forests, jumbled alleys, harmonious design.
What sound or noise do you love?  A gentle breeze rustling leaves in the trees.
What did you want to do when you grew up?  Artist, failing that Spitfire pilot, failing that marine archaeologist.
Favourite time of day?  Twilight. The sun has set, the lights come on but it's not yet night.
The child you most love to draw?  Between 8 to 10 years old, a loner, a dreamer.
