My journey the past several years has been about growing as a designer and creating momentum with the exploration of materials and techniques. I see my design as increasingly focused on combining the sculptural possibilities of materials with botanicals in a more artistic way.
This is a collection of a some of the designs that have been created with that growing confidence and momentum.
