“I have been in the visual arts for years,” she recalls, “and it happened unintentionally,” scraping through a high school that unfortunately didn’t offer any artistic support. “I think that not having had the resources then to study arts led me to create my own methods,” Romi explains, “to learn on my own, to understand that the story I choose to tell is beyond an institution or technique,” exploiting the creative tendencies that were always with her, but never utilised. “Of course, there are disadvantages too,” she adds, “such as lack of discipline and order, disorganisation… and so on,” caveating, however, that it seems improbable for one to be a master of all. “For now I haven't needed more than what I already have,” she explains, “my practice is very unstable and solitary,” spending a lot of her time alone in her studio. “My desk is full of mugs and glasses, papers, broken papers, pencils, books and cables,” she adds, “it’s a real mess,” moving to her bed when she’s unable to deal with the latter. “It’s the emptiest and most monochromatic place in the apartment,” Romi notes.
