Statement

Central to my work is an interest in storytelling and investigating identity within design. Recently, my work has taken on an interest in exploring the Queering of spaces and utopian narratives and how these themes are visualised.

I enjoy working across a range of mediums in my work as experimentation plays an important role in my design process, but I express myself best through creating tangible objects, writing, and print/editorial work.

Soft Mantra

A reclamation of our softness, Soft Mantra is a reminder for us to be gentle and kind to ourselves in a world where too often we choose self-criticism and self-hatred over self-love. The embroidered sweatshirt aims to get us thinking of ways we can love ourselves more.

Qtopia Manifesto
