More About The Surface Designer
I studied at the University of the Arts London and have been producing detailed surface designs since 2011. My styles involve the tactile, the feminine and the minimal. I am driven by the love for print, colour & surface texture, committed to creating beautiful, responsible & honestly made products for your home.
At my time at the London College of Communication, I’ve studied various styles and surface design techniques over the years. The knowledge I’ve obtained has been transferred over to ceramics, home accessories, wallpaper and fashion. Attending this course was the most interesting aspect of going to the college.
I would later go on to finding placements which were invaluable experiences. I was given the opportunity from Liberty’s and Wallpaper History Society a external brief where I would then take part in a public exhibition. The exhibition was held at the Artworker’s guild and I even came in third place.
My inspiration stems from life experiences as a whole but is not as broad as everything. At this time, I’ve been drawing inspiration from traditional Japanese aesthetics along with the natural world as seen in my work. This also includes fantasies and fairytales, also traveling is another great I can find inspiration. Traveling is not the end all be all for inspiration, where ever you are in the world, from waking up in the morning to going to the shops, you’ll find something along the way.
Currently, I am working on a few projects that involve motion and mapping projection forms, called “the Enchanted Forest”. This is part of my “Captivate Project” which is a representation of my work as a whole. This project is also a collaboration with AntiVJ and will be continued.
