When I was living in Barcelona, I became interested in the work of Antonio Gaudi and the 'Art Nouveau' movement. Like Gaudi I am inspired by natural forms and the fluidity of line. I like to start by looking at everyday objects, from different perspectives, from which I design my own.
I've been equally influenced in my work by the intricacies of Byzantine architecture, which I have echoed in my collection. My aim is to create something wearable but at the same time ornamental, to suit all ages and to be worn casually and formally.
