Coming to studying and design later in life than most, I have found a new love. I have come to understand how design impacts our everyday lives and how we experience the world.
Acknowledging the detriment caused by our throw away society, my aim is to design for longevity either through the celebration of the materials used, aesthetics, or the narrative of the design. Design is meaningless without the people who use or experience it and I've learned that to design well means a journey of understanding, through constant learning and reflection, with inevitable mistakes along the way.
an important part of the process for me, understanding the boundaries and potential of materials. I love how through experimentation an initial thought often becomes something unexpected. Design is a privilege and at the very least I hope through my practice to add a little beauty to the world.
