Patterns and colours influence the way I view the world. I have always seen patterns everywhere! I look for order in chaos and find emotion in the colours of daily life. The same with designing clothes. I love to learn and I’m curious about how things are created and how they function. My inspiration comes from diverse sources- visiting new places or colours reflecting in water. I love the challenge of focusing on different subjects. What’s important to me, is the structure and the shapes of the object I am focusing on.
