Jake and I wandered around the streets of Bondi. He shredded on a palm leaf, I made him lie down on a roundabout garden and dodge bees and we spent way too much time playing on a tyre swing. Then, he got bitten.

If art was a person, how would you describe that person?

They’d be funny, straight away. They’d catch your eye. They’d be someone spontaneous but at the same time very clued on or focused as to what direction they’re going in. That’s what I think of when I think of art – it’s all over the place but at the same time there’s always clearly a point.

What’s the stupidest or naughtiest thing you ever did at school?

The stupidest thing I ever did was probably not try hard enough (laughs). And the naughtiest would have to be driving a car onto the field in my final year and doing donuts. The grass got totally torn up. The principal came out and said if I hadn’t already finished, I’d be expelled. It was fine though, I got out of it, but it was a stupid thing to do. You’re like 18 when you finish school so you don’t know what’s happening really.

Do remember the most scared you’ve ever been in your life?

Probably at the start of the year when I dislocated my elbow. I was surfing and landed wrong in a really shallow area and my arm just snapped back. Initially I thought I was going to drown, I couldn’t lift my arm up to swim so I kept sinking and getting smashed and the surf was pretty big. Then I realised the beach was deserted and I still had a kilometre of misty sand to walk with my arm bent back the wrong way to try and find someone with a phone to call an ambulance.

Even then, I had to wait an hour and a half for the ambulance to show up with my arm totally ruined. I was on the verge of passing out and nearly throwing up, I was in shock, I was hyperventilating. Looking at my arm, there was a big hole where my elbow should’ve been. It was pretty gruesome, I’ve never done anything like that. I’m a bitch with pain so it was kinda fucked.
