Participatory Designer / Artist – Social Entrepreneur – Maker
I am a London based participatory designer and artist anthropologically mapping human experience through co-design practices to create participatory artworks and narrative environments.
I specialise in producing public artworks and events through participatory design practice with an emphasis on community engagement and harnessing the power of design for positive change.
An alumni of Central Saint Martin’s MA Narrative Environments, my projects sit at the intersection between storytelling and spatial design.
Alongside my design practice I work part-time at Central Saint Martins UAL, as a creative producer with the Spatial Practices Department, producing external facing public events, exhibitions and communications.
I am the founder of a social enterprise good makes, working with diverse groups of participants including refugees, migrants, at-risk teenagers and the elderly to co-design fabrics inspired by their shared stories, building confidence and community.
I have worked with a range of clients and organisations including local councils, the Barbican Arts Centre, EcoCity World Summit, Speaker’s Corner Trust, the British Paralympic Association and the Chelsea Flower Show.
I enjoy collaborating and co-design is central to my creative process working within multi-disciplinary teams. I have a network of creative collaborators I can call on for design projects. I aim to create designed environments and experiences that positively impact and enhance people’s lives and interactions.
