About

MY WORK BLURS THE BOUNDARY BETWEEN POETIC OBJECT AND PRODUCT/FURNITURE DESIGN.

I think about feelings that are socially considered negative and how objects accept those feelings in domestic spaces;

furniture that allows ourselves to retreat into our day dreams, our imagination and curiosity.

I think about the body, furniture, and the space in between.

In this process, story telling comes through my creation of non-narrative objects.
