Designer/maker with a diverse background having studied Architecture at the Bartlett School of Architecture University College London, before gaining a Masters Degree in Design from Central Saint Martins in London.
Surfaces are manipulated to create objects that explore scale from jewellery to sculptural objects and installations. By using planes and lines, forms are suggested, capturing volumes, transforming 2D surfaces into 3D objects. With precise geometry the pieces explore the relationship between the body and objects and how volumes, patterns, planes and forms are seen.
Work is produced by combining a broad range of skills, combining digital and hand processes and using 3D body scanning Rhino alongside hand drawings and making skills. This way of working has led to interdisciplinary projects, teaching workshops and skills sharing including 2015 ‘Parallel Practices’ with Informatics at Kings College London and the Crafts Council and 2016 residency with the British Council.
Work exhibited internationally and showcased in major galleries. Examples include the RA, Saatchi Gallery in London with ‘COLLECT’, The Museum of Arts and Design in New York and the Museum of Fine Art in Montreal. Working with the V&A Dundee on their ‘Design Relay’ project as their lead designer for the city of Aberdeen. One of 6 places in Scotland where design and making heritage is explored through a series of new objects to be exhibited at the opening of the new V&A in Dundee.
