Textiles in Practice
BA(Hons)

My work is driven by problem solving everyday issues through the use of smart design and forward thinking. I use a range of mediums in my practice and utilize my textiles background to inform the aesthetics of my designs. I hope that my work highlights current issues and offers engaging alternatives for consumers.

The transformation and multifunction of everyday objects is something I wanted to explore in my ‘Transformable furniture’ range as it involves problem solving the current issue of our fast throwaway culture and its damaging effects on our environment. I addressed the issue by focusing on our constant desire for something new, thus I explored with the notion of introducing multiple purposes and aesthetic appearances to a product.
