Almost randomly and quite last minute, 3 of my collages found their way into a group exhibition called Cut & Paste. Opens tonight(!) at The Mill in Walthamstow, the exhibition focuses on contemporary collages and the way we "recycle and reprocess the world around us through imagery". 

I'm super excited to take part at an exhibition that focuses on collages only.

As my background and my main focus is product design, I took part in exhibitions that were themed around objects and products, but I never before had the opportunity to take part at a collage exhib...

I've been meaning to do it for a long time and it is finally happening! 

I'm organising an 'open studios' event in my studio's building at Terrace Studios in Hackney. 

The building, which used to be a sweat shop way back when, is now home to an eclectic variety of creatives. We are artists, illustrators, graphic designers, entrepreneurs, designers, photographers, architects, jewellery makers, musicians and more.

As artists and creative people we find ourselves most of the time by ourselves in the studio, working on our art / design /craft etc. This event is an o...

It's time to say it - I am a woman.

Not only that, but I am also a wife, a mother, a daughter and a friend.

I am a sister to my sisters, I am an aunt and a cousin, and I am also a niece .  

Sometimes I am a patient, sometime a customer, an eBay buyer, a street walker, an acquaintance, an occasional bus rider.

I am a designer and an artist. A furniture maker, a model maker, an interior designer, a fashion lover, an art enthusiastic, a lover of colours, a lover of shapes.

(Some colours. Some shapes.)

I am recently a ma'am, sometimes a Mrs.

I used to be a lit...

My online shop is now open for business. Whoop whoop.

I've been working on it for a while and it is finally on the air, currently offering Giclée prints of my collages, and soon I will sell my designed objects as well.

As the shop has just been launched the prices are low and delivery (in the UK only) is FREE. So go on. Get yourself a bargain.

Click on the shop section, choose a colourful print and hang it on the wall.

Shop shop shop.

I have recently opened my Instagram account. Yay. You can now follow me here.

I'm still discovering the lay of the land, but I did find one of the most inspiring - design related accounts that Instagram has to offer. It belongs to Alice Rawsthorn, a design journalist for the international New York Times. And it's more than just nice photos!

Each week she posts about a different topic. And so each day of the week she uploads a photo with information. It is always design related but in a broad way, which makes it very interesting and eye opening. This week the to...

Just before Christmas, the head of Industrial Design at the Holon Institute of Technology, where I studied for my BA, contacted me to say that as part of their 40th anniversary, they will be curating a new exhibition called 'Rewriting History' and he invited me to submit some of my work.

As the intention of the exhibition is to show graduates older design work from around the time they were students alongside more current projects, it was a good opportunity for me to review everything  I've created since my student days.

For my older piece, I decided to show my...

Hooray.  I finally built a new website and it now has this new blog section in it, which is where I will share my inspirations, my thoughts and my ideas. I will reveal a little bit of what's going on in the studio and in my (sometimes very crowded) head.

I also opened an Instagram account, as if the website and this blog are not enough. Some say it'll do me wonders. So let's see..

I can't possibly publish this post without a photo. So here is what my desk looks like now. I'm working on a new collage.

See you around
