Sustainability and repurposing materials are very important in my work and in my life. I am always looking for more innovative processes to design better. I see technology not as a limitation or an opposition to an artisanal way of working, instead I use technology to my advantage and I believe working digital can enhance my designs.
While creating my collages is a quite analogue process, I also animate the images to give them a new dimension.
I am an expert in Adobe programmes such as photoshop and Illustrator, I also use Procreate on my iPad and I design digital in CLO3D and Blender.
My spare time I like to spend in nature, I love going for long walks, especially in forests. I also have a passion for treasure hunting in second hand and vintage shops.
I like to join forces with brands and people that have a genuine vision and a story to tell. I love to talk with you about creating beautiful products with a purpose.
