About me
In my practice I’m looking for connections between human behaviour, rituals, nature and contemporary world. I’m working in between researching, writing, photography, art and design to explore contemporary world by observing, story-telling, designing concepts and systems. In 2022 I graduated from University of the Arts London with a degree in BA Interior Design, where I developed my consciousness on how spaces influence humans perceptions within different contexts. Currently, I’m based in London and I’m studying MA Curating Contemporary Arts at Royal College of Arts in London.
