Thanks so much to the lovely and talented Rachel at Pebble Zine for this Byrd & Spry interview. It’s a lovely online magazine and this Winter edition is all about fresh starts. The interview is about the move I made from teaching to Byrd & Spry. I loved answering Rachel’s questions and the magazine looks beautiful (and I should know, I read enough of ’em).
In the interview, I talked about my favourite Constance Spry quote – it’s on my website –
“I want to shout out: “Do what you please, follow your own star; be original if you want to be and don’t if you don’t want to be. Just be natural and gay and light-hearted and pretty and simple and overflowing and general and baroque and bare and austere and stylised and wild and daring and conservative, and learn and learn and learn. Open your minds to every form of beauty.”
So Pebble commissioned a really brilliant graphic artist to create a hand drawn illustration of the quote. Isn’t it beautiful? It’s by the very clever Brooklyn artist Jamie Gardner. Thanks, Jamie. I love it!
