Reflection

As a skilled illustrator, I use drawing as the focus for my design work. Always adventurous at the research stage of a project I identify a variety of ideas to inspire my design work and experiment by mixing drawing with a large range of media. 

I am a technique-based designer often working with complex materials and methods to create highly innovative processes. Striving to push the boundaries of textile design and to create truly unique ideas, I choose unusual and often challenging materials to work with. By working hard and learning how to manipulate the mediums I develop new processes every time to drive to be individual and unique. 

I work very naturally with colour and mix combinations to make successful and interesting colour palettes. 


Reflection

My dog was always beside me. It was just natural as I breathe. Now I'm in London far from him and time goes by. I want to touch and communicate with him, but we are in different places. So I brought him into my mind to be together.

Most people want a warm connection and look for consolation by being together.

I wanted to reflect that emotion and for my work to be able to deliver emotional healing and comfort through visual tactility.

I am using the warm and soft textures of layers of yarn creating light and dense surfaces. Each piece has a hard core inside. This core material, made from various materials from wood to precious metals, helps to emphasize core strength even within these small delicate objects. 

My work sits between jewelry and contemporary applied art.The destination for my work is a gallery context and high-end jewelry shop.
