What inspires you and why?-Mostly emotions, feelings, random pictures, characteristic human beings, the dark side, sounds, culture, the world

What did you want to be when you grew up?

-It's always been rather designer or artist. I think it was being an artist before I knew what a designer was.

What time of the day is your favorite? -When I can see the sun sets in the horizont

What is your best summer memories from your childhood?-Standing in the low water outside of Sønderho, Fanø looking for amber feeling the bottom of the ocean.

What is your favorite dessert and why?
-Everything with whipped cream. It 's a fix.

Where do you get your energy from?- The fantasy, the world, real food, leaving this city as often as possible, doing what I want, sleeping until noon on a wednesday if needed, a creative storage space in my mind that grows like my moroccan mandarin tree.

What do you dream about?
-Doing more, doing it larger.
What makes you laugh?
-Honesty, because it's so real. Everything that doesn't try to be something it aren't. 
What is your favorite place in Copenhagen?
-I can't say, having a thing about always trying to escape. Maybe my kitchentable.

Thank you, Karen :)
