Meet the Designer
“As an active and curious creator, I regularly seek and refine techniques in traditional mediums and digital practices. Whether in handling printed matter or image editing. I wish to spark joy and inspiration through vibrant and saturated colours, such as in my photography and illustration. Throughout my creative journey, I strive to continue practicing my critical eye, self-directedness and process documentation.”
