About me
I am a freelance print designer and illustrator who has recently graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2020 after studying a BA in Textile Design. My approach towards print design consists of playful colours & intricate illustrations. I explore themes surrounding mental health & I wish to raise an awareness for these issues in an abstract way. My designs have meaningful composition that corresponds to my experiences of living with OCD through the juxtaposition of my illustrations & exploration of colour proportion. In the near future I aspire to use my eye for colour & arrangement to create meaningful contemporary spaces within homes. https://n
  • 'Mind Your Maze'
    'Mind Your Maze''Mind Your Maze' is a depiction of what it feels like living with OCD and intrusive thoughts, and how this has manifested in my everyday life. My work explores the complexity of certain disorders such as OCD in hope to raise an awareness and break down any stereotypical assumptions society may have surrounding OCD. I chose to digitally render this artwork as I felt this represented societies loss of touch of the world outside of social media, and how we are all consumed by a veneer displayed on

  • Nmmela designs X Rubi-blue
    Nmmela designs X Rubi-blueThe print designer Naima Elbounhi and I teamed up for a collaborative project exploring concepts of ’abstraction’ and ’reality’, taking an abstract approach to teamwork. Due to the current pandemic, we chose to send several examples of our work, in Naima's case pure prints and in mine pencil portraits, and manipulate it from the others end. I initially created these portraits of people close to me I’ve missed during isolation. I decided to include myself, as I feel like I'm changing and evolving
