About me
I am a visual artist, designer and DJ born and bred in South-East London. My visual art practice as well as my musical work reflects and digests our inner and outside worlds. Through symbols, prints, silhouettes and sounds I use the concept of 'Home' as a vessel; hoping to feed minds and hearts - mine included - with a sense of belonging and curiosity.

    Design InternRoksanda
     - London, United KingdomInternship
    This was an incredible experience where I was able to work across different departments in the ROKSANDA team. Mainly a Design intern, I was able to work closely with the other interns and design team to create samples, produce high quality CADs and and Colour ups and assist with design. It was also an invaluable experience being able to work with the Production team as this strengthened my understanding of the design process from sketch to final product. I also worked as a dresser during fittings and casting for London Fashion Week 2021, which taught me attention to detail, flexibility and professionalism, during a fast paced and hectic environment in the studio as well as backstage during the show.
