I'm a creative designer and MA graduate of Central Saint Martins with a passion for colour, innovation and craft. I love to blend the worlds of art and science together to create new designs. Research is a pivotal part of my design practice. I look to the past, present and future in order to shape my work. Currently I am most fascinated by biomimicry and its potential to inform design and a more sustainable future. Based in London, I make the most of the cultural landmark and visit exhibitions and installations for inspiration, documenting my findings on Instagram.
