Statement

Design and nature have fascinated me for as long as I can remember, this life-long fascination has since driven my passion for invention and interiors. Natural form is my inspiration with a drive to create organic structures that utilise and enhance space.

I am an optimistic and enthusiastic learner with a reliable work ethic and a positive personality. I describe myself as a determined perfectionist with great attention to detail and unique reform ideas. I love learning and developing my skills so I can broaden my opportunities and experiences in all aspects of work. I aim for photo realistic visualizations, allowing the client to gain a detailed understanding of the space.

With unique ideas and a passionate viewpoint, I can display my personality through my work. By working in a methodical manner, I eliminate mistakes and time wasting. Overall, I am an extremely passionate designer who strives to make change.
