1. What do you love most about your job? 
As cliché as it sounds, I love being surrounded by beautiful things. Art can really change the feeling of a space and in turn, affect your mood. Sitting down at my desk at the gallery and looking at beautiful artwork is so uplifting. Whether I’m looking at something really soft and calming or really colourful and energetic, that feeling really rubs off on you.
2. Where can we find you on a) weekdays b) weekendsAt the gallery! With the exception of occasional help from part-time employees or interns, and lots of help from family, when the gallery is open you can find me there, weekday and weekend. 3.
