Interview with HELENA HAUSS:

Your childhood ambition:

To be a kid forever.

Something you treasure:

My memories and my journals. I kept them from age 10 to 25. I’ve got loads, and I’m so happy I did so I never forget about my life and all my personal adventures, feelings and struggles.

Your worst habit:

I’m a control freak. And I tend to get batshit crazy when something doesn’t go the way I planned. I wish I was more of the “zen” type, but I’m really not… Then again I guess it goes hand in hand with the stuff that got me where I am today, like being a hard worker and demanding a lot of myself.

The aspect of your work that’s most important to you:

I love the entire process, but what I like best is telling stories: my work is about memories and the strong feelings brought by the loss of innocence, first times, youth and discovery.

Your first job:

Spoiled brat.

Someone whose work you highly recommend:

I really love Ugo Gattoni’s crazy dystopian landscapes. Joel Daniel Phillips’ amazing life-size charcoal portraits. And Violaine & Jeremy’s insanely intricate and delicate pencil illustrations.
