To give us a sense of you as a designer, what is your major and why?

For me choosing to major in print was a given. Print is the ultimate celebration of creation where art, science and craft come together.


“If things start happening, don't worry, don't stew, just go right along and you'll start happening too" or so says Dr Seuss. How do you get started on a new project?

A new project invites you to let go and dream, to give in to abstraction and the unfamiliar, to embrace a chaotic sense of disorder and put pen to paper.


Bricolage is about using and utilising what you find to hand. What tools or techniques do you find you can’t help coming back to?

It is important for me to not to lose a sense of the handmade in an increasingly digitised world. The inherent beauty and honesty of natural fibres such as wool, linen and silk, together with a hybrid of traditional screen-printing is a mainstay.
