I am currently looking for experience in interior design and architecture, furniture design, art installation, exhibition and production design to drive forwards and challenge the way I create, visualise, and execute space in diverse circumstances before I start my MA in Interior Design at the Royal College of Art in 2018. I have recently graduated with a First Honours Degree in Illustration from Norwich University of the Arts. My practice exists to play with the limitations of creativity, driving forwards the experimentation of materials to communicate narrative. I challenge myself to see beyond the mundanities of the environment I inhabit, and to unravel the narrative which draws the space out of it’s elements. I document the connection between society and the built environment, to experience, reflect on, and visually communicate the diverse activity of how we utilise or neglect space. I practice noticing the spaces which I occupy; detecting, capturing, and constructing the beauty in the natural play of light within the proximity of an interior space; changing forms, textures and colours which shape the perception of an inside environment.Locked Pro Plan feature

During my internship I worked alongside Izzi, creating sets for their products, and then photographing the IzziRainey lifestyle for their website and upcoming magazine articles. I also helped set up their stands at events, maintaining their strong commercial appearance, and actively selling their homeware to potential customers. At the time, the team was rebooting there marketing appearance, it was interesting to discuss innovative ways of increasing sales through their appearance on social media, in order to reach their target market.
