Breakfast is usually crunchy nut cornflakes and I must have a cup of tea. I’m horribly addicted. At weekends, health goes out the window and me and my boyfriend and business partner, Ali, opt for the classic fry-up on a roll – egg, bacon and tatty scone, you can’t beat it.

To save money, we take a packed lunch to the gallery, but if we’re feeling flush, we grab a wrap from The Bay Tree on Great Western Road. They’re amazing – fried potato with lamb, in a tortilla with salad and hummus.

I play hockey most nights so dinner is about 10pm. I usually pile on the carbs as I’m starving, cold and wet. I love comfort food like spaghetti or sausage and mash, but our treat is going to Asia Styles at St Georges Cross for crispy beef with Peking sauce.

I drink Lucozade Sport and loads of water, but if I’m having a proper drink, I love red wine or a cold Corona and lime.

As part of the Glasgow Subway Festival, aerosol artists will be painting a mural at Kelvinbridge underground station on Sat 12 April. Amy Whiten and Ali Wyllie from Recoat Gallery will be running street art workshops on Sun 13 Apr at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.
