What is it that you do?

I draw, using simple materials - pen and ink on paper mostly.

Which artists are you inspired by?

Marina Strocchi, Moonassi, Keith Haring, Basquiat, Matisse, David Shrigley - just to name a few. I generally find I’m most inspired by the people around me though, like my brother Gus Leunig and good friend Zoe Irving.

I also love reading and listening to music so I’ve tried writing and making music but that’s a little rusty.
