Hi Lotte! Tell us a bit about yourself and how you became an artist? I’ve been drawing since I was a kid and, in fact, loved drawing all through high school but had no plans to pursue it or consider it a viable job. I am very grateful to have supportive parents that put forward the idea to study at National Art School. I was probably ungrateful at the time (sorry parents!) but it was so fun trying out different mediums, being introduced to iconic artists and going through the motions of working out my style – it was a wild time! After graduating I was linked up with a group called Stayfly Sydney which at its inception would organise big paint sessions and was a platform to highlight women street artists, writers, dancers and rappers. The first jam sesh they held was the second time I’d picked up a spray can – I fell in love.
