Sarah Staunton Q & A with Sibella

Describe the place you work…

The place I work in is filled with stacks of inky paper, Lumira ‘Balinese Ylang Ylang’ candles, crystals collected from my travels through the US and Madagascar, Art pieces I bought from some locals in Hawaii, tall leafy plants, high Art Nouveau ceilings, enough cat hair to make a fur coat thanks to my two indoor cats Nemo (13) and Phoenix (4), and my favourite part… big old white windows that sit above a lavender bush (that passersby regularly stop by to enjoy) and a bottle brush tree that dapples the walls inside with beautiful shapes when the afternoon sun beams in. I also like to work in silence.

Your greatest tool?

I love the way pens and paints glide across tracing paper. I especially love the way metallics on tracing paper behave when hung by the window where the sun hits.

Holiday destination?

Been to: NYC, Dreaming of: Cuba.

Latest Book Purchase?

Rainer Maria Rilke – Possibility of being.

Go-to colour?

I have an obsession with all things white.

Best place to have coffee, tea or cocktails?

Gertrude & Alice is my favourite place in Bondi for Chai Tea, Books and catch ups.
