About me

 

Dynamic, visionary and resourceful display artist, always looking to create, design and assemble materials to give life to exceptionally beautiful and quirky store windows, interior and event installations for established Brands, as well as pop ups and one off visual strategies. Particularly interested in discovering the potential of rethink and reworking discarded, unconventional materials and everyday’s objects to build unique, sustainable, organic and one off design alternatives, offering intelligent, cost effective and ingenious creative solutions. I focus on building my own independent portfolio of display artwork aimed at large businesses as well as small ones. With a large dose of creativity, freedom of expression, use of traditional, craft techniques and practises in sculpting, painting, assembling and a bold, confident attitude in experimenting new working methods and the blend of a range of diverse materials, these so regrettably neglected sources can be transformed into a viable, aesthetically fascinating, distinctive visual interpretation in the representation of a brand image through window display design, product styling and store layout.
