“For me, creating a collection is a very painful process. I just like looking at my environment: walking in Prospect Park, going to the movies, reading a book, listening to music. At some point, something shows up and I begin to design on the paper, and I start to play with it. It depends on a lot of things but when the ideas come, I feel free and happy.”
