Fresh Moments with Jemima Kirke

A spotlight on Fresh people

Jemima Kirke

Brooklyn-based actress best known for her role as Jessa on the HBO television series Girls, accomplished painter, and mother of two

I dream of…

“…my house being so organized that it fixes all of my life problems.”

I’m inspired by…

“…my kids’ drawings. They do not feel at all restricted by the shape of the paper. They will start anywhere on the page, recreating the space entirely.”

I feel most Fresh…

“…after a long day in the studio.”

My sacred beauty ritual consists of…

“…a good four hours of sleep and ice cold water on my face in the morning to wake me up.”

The scent of vetiver always reminds me of…

“…my grandfather.”

Words to live by:

“When I was young, I admired clever people. Now that I am old, I admire kind people.”

—Abraham Joshua Heschel
