I design unique and innovative spaces and products with a strong sense of identity.
My degree in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Arts and further studies at Central St Martins coupled with a background in fashion and jewellery design have provided me with a solid understanding of design, creative problem-solving, use of colour, texture, space and proportion.
Alongside creative direction and bespoke design, I have focused on designing hospitality, workspace and residential interiors as well as art direction, staging and creative scenic design for production. I'm open to collaborations and undertaking design-based projects of all kinds.
With different projects come different styles and I enjoy adapting my aesthetic to each brief whilst working meticulously to plan each space, product or project imaginatively. I have an appreciation for a diverse mix of mid-century, contemporary and industrial styles and possess a real love for unearthing unique treasures. Art advisory is a key part of my skillset, I have excellent knowledge of contemporary art from up and coming artists to household names, I really believe a perfectly curated art selection can really be the difference between a visually exciting space and one that feels disjointed. I have a keen eye for taking design inspiration from a meaningful element of the project, enabling it to have an elevated sense of uniqueness. Creating, sourcing and curating art and fine art prints as part the projects I undertake is something I feel particularly passionate about.
From concept to completion, whatever the scale, I offer high-quality, uncomplicated yet detail-oriented creative direction, design and styling for a range of special projects.
