“My work focuses on making functional objects which explore the relationship between the traditional and the contemporary. The inspiration comes from my surroundings: objects and their historical context, architecture, texture, colour, design and nature. They all continually feed my visual language and open new paths of investigation. Making is not only a personal journey but also my interest in generating interaction and a narrative within the environment.”
