Q1. What is the best show (music) you have ever been too?
A1. Definitely a Mint Chicks show (Ruban from Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s old band) but it’s too hard to pick just one. I saw them practically every weekend for a few years.

Q7. How old were you the first time you got drunk? How was the experience?
A7. When I was about 17, I had a terrible night before during and after for reasons I am not going to go into. 

Q8. Biggest Pet Peeve?
A8. Comments on the internet?I don’t know. I have many. Mostly to do with people making assumptions or judging. 

Q9. What was your childhood ambition?
A9.I dont remember really having one really. Helpful answer! 

Q10. Is there any toy you really wanted as a kid but was never given? Did you ever buy it for yourself when you got older?
A10. I didn’t really go without, I remember one year I wanted a Sylvanian Families mansion which seemed like a ridiculous request AND I GOT IT. And then my sister put the stairs from the mansion in my bed and I sat on them and broke them. 

Henrietta’s portraits caught my eyes as their distorted profiles and faces appear to be unraveling. The layers and thoughts of the subject not just held behind the eyes, but stretched across the canvas. I love her use of color, although I’d refrain from calling it subtle its far from assaulting. One can always ask the artist what their thoughts are behind the work they create, but I’d much rather interpret it for myself. What situations are you left in unraveling, processing, falling apart, or the world seems to be moving so fast in front of you; you’re seeing the world and yourself blur together?
