I had the honour to interview artist Justine Ashbee for Freunde von Freunden the other week. My interview, accompanied by the beautiful images by Robbie Lawrence, are now up and ready for your perusal.

Justine is an American artist, who creates beautiful and intricate weavings in her remote studio in Brighton's surrounding countryside. We chatted about her close connection to nature, what role instinct plays in her work and how she came to live in England.

I think that it’s really crucial to allow yourself to not really know why you’re interested in something but just allow that curiosity to lead you.
