This week, we chat to artist and teacher Sarah Key from Lalor Park.
Three people I would love to invite to dinner: Vivien Leigh, Captain America and Johnathan Reece Myers (Played Henry 8th in the Series Tudors)
The best advice I ever received was: From my parents- “There is no dream too big that can’t be achieved if you put in all the hard work”
The most amazing thing I’ve ever done is: Enter the Archibald Prize and give birth to my two daughters Scarlett and Genevieve.
If I was down to my last $10 I would spent it on: Blusher- it will always perk you up, and of course some bling.
My greatest fear is: Being trapped in a lift, or falling down stairs.
My fantasy job is:Being a character in a Jane Austen Movie
If I could have a super power it would be: Telekinisis- to move things with my mind, and to teleport to another location when in a rush
My favourite phrase is... “You can never have too much bling or be too overdressed”
My hidden talent is: Being able to do accents. Very useful when reading bedtime stories to my children.
If I could travel back in time, I would love to see/meet: My Nonno’s and Nonna’s who passed away. I would also love to meet Clark Gable,Vivien Leigh and C.S Lewis (and go through his wardrobe in the sparest of spare rooms.)
The one thing I will never throw out: My artworks.
True love is… love that last through good times and bad times, and where passion never dies
My last meal would be: Mt vesuvius Rissotto with King Prawns, chicken based in spicy cream sauce.
My first car was: Volvo 244 Bronze Sedan.
I’m always being asked: How I manage to keep my house so sparkly clean.
My most embarrassing moment was... Writing a letter as a kid to Ralph Macchio the Karate Kid with S.W.A.L.K on it, though thank goodness I never sent it.
What people may not know about me is: I used to be a successful fashion designer
Weirdest thing in my glovebox: A comprehensive sunglass collection.
My biggest fashion faux pas was: Culottes with heels crossing the road. A very dangerous combination.
I wish I hadn’t: Gone into a spa after having my hair coloured.
My earliest memory is: playing unbelievable imaginative games with my sister growing up.
On my bedside table is: Books about the Tudor Dynasty
People say I look like: I am swedish but I am proudly Australian with French, Italian and Greek background.
A movie I think everyone should see: Of Course “Gone with the Wind”
In the future… I would like to be a succesful artist winning The Archibald
Favourite book as a child: The golden book-The Rabbit is next, a story about a young girl and her toy rabbit and the many adventures she has as she waits to take her rabbit to the Vet to be fixed.
