London

Statement

London-based artist and designer interested in projects that encourage participation, collaboration and introspection. Working across disciplines I am interested in the role of abstractions and visual narratives in mirroring emotional states. My recent venture in material design challenges the notion of preciousness by creating wearable sculptures from biodegradable matter. 

I am interested in expanding my practice into different mediums where the public can interact with, and even complete an experience – places of togetherness translated into objects, installations and performances.
