About me

I'm interested in our relationship with objects, how we interact with them, how we value them, and how we discard them. I often reflect these ideas in my work; how components connect, interact and move in relation to one another, how light hits it, or how a person may touch or use an object. Many of my previous projects have an engineered quality to them- they feature sharp edges, smooth arcs, proportionate geometry and simplistic forms. My methodical way of working is derived from my interests in mathematics and science.

        • Internship
        • Photoshopping jewellery compositions, designing and making new jewellery stands. This was a very short internship due to my living location. I worked a lot from home producing research and visuals for their social media pages. Later on in the internship I designed some very simple Jewellery stands to go with their Autumn collection - these were essentially blocks of oak which the jewellery would rest on for photographing.

        Assistant Editor

        ACS ltd.

        Jun 2015 - Sep 2016
        • Margate, United Kingdom
        • Freelance
        • Ann Carrington is a sculptor, I assisted with Photoshopped visuals and a lot of the making processes like brazing, welding, assembling, glueing, fixing, sewing to name a few; as a highly skilled maker I can be found taking part in the most intricate tasks - but I'm able to handle much more heavy industrial tasks too. I also produce a lot of essential graphic work, this can go into the work itself, as visual representations for clients, or as invitations to events. I recently put the designs together for the large 3x4m banners that hung outside the Royal College of Art for her exhibition 'Pop Goes The Weasel.' This was an essential tool in attracting the public into the gallery space.
