MA work

I love design. I love its inspiration. I love working with the unknown, the constant trying and the failing. I love the vision, the learning and the intimate moments of insight. I love the way every thought changes me, forcing me to think outside everything I know. It encompasses me, seduces me and allows me to weave together knowledge, intuition and spirituality in very real and impactful ways. Who could want for more?

Taking inspiration from the art engraved in the fabric of our cities, my final project looks at creating growing natural ‘paint’. I transmute nature into sprayable mists that every man, woman and child can use to leave a mark on their little piece of England.
