Recent Interview | She's Something

It is not every day that one gets to do an interview with a group of women whose aesthetic sensibility really keeps you on your toes. I adore the talented (global) team behind We Are The Somethings, so when they asked me to do an interview for their She's Something column, I was a bit floored.

It was a a great opportunity for me to better examine how I balance and interweave my family and studio life between NYC and Bulgaria. Please enjoy the feature whenever you have the time. It's a nice slow read with beautiful photos by Meredith in NYC and Nadya in Sofia. Together we are all quite something, and for this I am so grateful.
