Who’s your design or art hero? Chelsea: “My aunt, Nancy Fouts, is one of my creative heroes. She worked her whole life as a commercial artist. This was pre-Photoshop. If you were building an ad campaign from the 1970’s to the 1990’s in London and you needed a giant Twix bar or a frog smoking a cigarette, you most likely had to hire Nancy. She and her late husband, Malcolm Fowler, ran this business of providing such models from their old vicarage in north London. Their work was their life together. Even though it kind of frightened me as a child, that creative entrepreneurial lifestyle — of making your way on your wits alone — is something that left its mark on me.”
