What’s the best part about Camelot?

Having an unlimited creative outlet and being constantly challenged.



Where do you draw inspiration from?

My people! By that I mean everyone at Camelot, our amazing talented artists, great licenses as well as family and friends.  They inspire me with their style, their clothes, hobbies, stories.. everything I see or hear is converted into colours and images.



Your favorite Camelot project?

Strange but it feels like every project is like one of my babies. I simply cannot choose. But if I did, and the other ones found out... well, I shudder to think of the consequences.




If you woke up one morning to find out that you were an expert sewer, what would be the first thing you’d make?

Hands down a matching quilted jacket for me and Olivia.





What did you do in your past life?

More of the same but for finished home décor items.




Your dream project would be?

Design patterns for Kleenex boxes. I always saw those boxes as missed opportunities.





What is your superpower?

Great cook. It helps that I enjoy cooking and eating a lot.




A secret skill you have?

Getting ready to leave the house in under 2 minutes!
