‘Based on a strong interest in design, art and humanities, my approach is deliberately interdisciplinary. My practice is about establishing connections from eclectic sources in order to generate meaning through hybridity. Inspired by a large spectrum of disciplines (from printmaking and craft to history of art and philosophy) and with a pronounced focus on colours, shapes and textures, my work is about creating intriguing imagery that will attract the viewer and provoke interrogations. ‘

Common Objects Studio was founded by Margherita Huntley and myself in 2012. We met while studying at Central Saint Martins and began collaborating on a range of projects that emphasise our shared approach, which is experimental, interdisciplinary and aims to question established forms. We’ve worked on a range of projects including talks, exhibitions, workshops, publications, image making all with a view to extend the possibilities and the definition of graphic design.

Since 2013, I have become a member of Studio Hato, a London-based graphic design studio. Studio Hato is coupled with Hato Press, an independent publishing house and Risograph printing press founded in 2009.’

‘I’m currently experimenting more with illustration and drawings. I have also recently joined a ceramic class to explore three dimensionality. Based on my illustrations, my ceramics are thought as physical interpretations and translations of my drawings.’
