BERLIN: Sketching does not require much, whether you do it with words, a drawing pen or a camera. Sometimes it is a picture you see or have in mind or a thought that makes you want to rethink something you have done before or will do in the future.

And then you have your little helpers which put your mind going. A book, a film, a picture or just anything. For me it is mostly in books and objects. Any kind of books but mostly visual ones that tell a story in pictures or translate something visually which I have not seen that way before.

Things are everywhere. They constantly influence our eye, whether we like it or not. This is why sometimes I do need a visual break which I can either find in nature or a book like one of the latest by TASCHEN where you have a selection of the nicest cabins on this planet.

The fashion collections each season inspire me because of their variety. I am fascinated by design, form, texture and material, and in fashion I see everything coming together to tell a whole story. The same with beauty. How do you enhance beauty, fake it or just hold on to it can be a fantastic visual journey.

When you walk around keep your eyes wide open and I can tell you sketching is like editing. It puts things in order and place and makes this world make more sense.

IRMA travels the world, writes and illustrates the life she lives.
