Many designers work over their heads to create something original. White nights and stressful seasons to create daring patterns and innovative accessories.

My work is often inspired by literature.The work is non-functional and aims to encourage people to speculate on the nature of value. I enjoy the idea of working with disposable organic materials that are transient in nature, imbuing them with worth and creating something intriguing and of great beauty.
