Objects are important. Our objects speak for us,
tell stories about us, show others who we are. From the cup you use to
drink your morning coffee to the pillowcase you rest your head on last
thing at night, I believe the objects we choose to surround ourselves
with should enhance our daily lives.
The essence of my business is to explore our relationship with
everyday objects. I’m interested in the significance of objects that are
seen throughout history and found in all cultures - milagros, lucky
charms, amulets - which provide solace, support and healing to us in
trying times. It is important to me that my work connects on an
emotional level, to foster beautiful relationships that give joy and
pleasure and make people smile.
These values and connections between people & objects, creativity
& culture and heritage & humour all feed into my work with
cultural institutions, whether it’s a bespoke product for a museum shop,
a product launch, Museum Late event or a family activity workshop. I
playfully re-imagine and re-present everyday objects and places,
transforming them into thoughtful and unexpected products or experiences
and inviting people to reassess their relationships with them.
What I can do for your cultural institution

I’d love to design a product for your shop, create an event for a Museum Late or design and deliver a learning workshop activity drawing on your rich heritage.
