Artist Statement:
I graduated from Ravensbourne in 2002. I enjoy all aspects of the design process, from the initial thoughts that come from a brief to presenting my solutions in 2D and 3D. I try to approach anything I do in a way that creates new ways of thinking for myself.
If I can be stimulated by what I design then hopefully it can stimulate those who use what I design.I have extensive experience with computers including knowledge of 2D and 3D packages and am able to complement my sketching and drawing skills using the
computer at all stages of the design process. I am experienced in final presentation skills as I have exhibited my work at New Designers, Sensorama 100% Design Guaranteed, the Ravensbourne Degree Show at the Glass House Truman Brewery in Brick Lane, the Student Lighting awards at various venues including the NEC in Birmingham and final design proposals to Safeway and
the Design Council.
