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...

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.
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..
