1) What are you most looking forward to working with Mockbee & Co.?

The opportunity to explore new ideas and pushing the boundaries on design. Also, to having the flexibility on what it is that I am designing and being inspired by their other designers.

 

2) What are you aspirations?

I am currently setting up my own business that showcase designers works on a range of travel accessories. Similarly to Mockbee & Co, I love the idea of championing talented designers and getting their names and works out there. I hope to make products that are not only functional but beautiful and stand the test of time.

 

3) Where do your ideas come from?

I discovered a book called Alchemy and Mysticism which is full of really inspiring old imagery from ancient rituals and symbolism which I have been referencing. Quite often, I find myself influenced by books I am reading as they pull me into a certain mood that effects what I draw and create.

 

4) What is your favourite destination?

India is such a magical place to visit and has long been a favourite, it’s all encompassing and invigorating in all it’s colours and smells. It really is a feast for the eyes, with beautiful shrines and bright imagery scattered all over the place. I love going to the markets there and getting inspired by the textiles and the embroidered saris.
