MY TOP THREE STYLE TIPS…
Wear what you love and makes you feel great, take what you wish from trends but don’t follow them wholeheartedly or you will look like a clone and don’t be afraid to splash a great print or colour
ARTISTS THAT I ADMIRE… WHY?
Dali – a talent in all mediums of art and did his own thing without listening to the critics, anything from oils to vogue covers to jewellery.
I admire Claire Bridge, Melbourne based artists doing a lot for females in the art world as well as a strong environmental cause through perfectly painted works – just divine!

Café wise see above, I also love Golden Boy, Africola can do no wrong, Udaberri for drinks and tapas and of course The Henry Austin
