About me
I am an artist, designer and researcher working at the intersection of art, spatial design and material design. With an MA in Information Experience Design from the Royal College of Art and a professional background in spatial and exhibition design, my work questions and communicates ideas about material culture in art and architecture. By crossing disciplines with a research-led approach, I work with design as an experimental practise but also as an investigative tool to build up new narratives between us and our material local environments. My work varies from sculpture and surface design to interior design, exhibition design and multi-media installations. Currently working as Head of Art development & Research at StoreyStudio, and director of Studio-Mále. Open for commissions and collaborations.

    Designers in Residence is a core part of the Design Museum's programme. It has two main aims: to provide designers in the early stages of their careers time and space to develop their practice and produce new work, and to offer museum visitors an opportunity to engage with live design projects.
