My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Focus on your goal, and just keep plodding towards it with blinders on.
Q. What’s your fantasy profession?
A. I don't have to fantasize, I live it every day! My studio is just steps off my bedroom, so I am fortunate to be living my fantasy.
Q. What do you regret most?
A. That I didn't make the most of my ballet career when I had the chance. Ballet requires sacrifice, determination, and above all, hard work, and I was too young to really understand that at the time. However, I'd learned those lessons by the time I launched my second career and and I'm grateful to have been given a second chance.
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. That someone would sneak up on me while I'm sleeping and shave off one of my eyebrows.
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. That I have been able to make a living in the arts my whole life, and combine it with raising children (Sasha, 17 and Ben, 14) who I not only love, but I really like.
