I am inspired by people and what the individual can bring to an object. Therefore, when i am designing, i am designing for a very specific person. I like the idea of essences and attributes of accessories and people bleeding into one another, as both fall into conjunction with each other. Functionality is very important to me. I focus on what benefits a product can provide to a person. I primarily work in leather, practising the traditional construction techniques. Most of my work to-date has made an attempt at marrying the traditional with the new and different.
