I based it on 80s brothel interiors, so it’s kitsch and camp.
What do you get up to when you’re not modelling? 
I look at pictures, read, watch cartoons, take and process photographs and sometimes make films. And I play with my puppy.
How would you describe your style? 
Pretty messy, experimental and thrown together, always tied together by my boots and bomber, which I would feel naked without.
What music do you listen to? 
I never get sick of old favourites, Neil Young, Jeff Buckley, Van Morrison, I like strong lyrics and interesting voices.
Where do you go to have a good time? 
I’m not huge on clubs. Pubs and friends’ houses are more my thing.
What does the term ‘punk’ mean to you? 
I think it’s about a ‘do it yourself’ spirit, not just with style but with finding purpose and answers; not waiting to be told how to do things or be given what you want but just figuring it out yourself.
What message do you want to send to the world? 
Be nice to people and don’t take yourself too seriously.
