I worked in furniture, both design and make, and upcycling prior to starting my Architecture degree at UCLAN. My degree has provided me with a range of both analytical and technical skills. Developing a variety of skills including Photoshop, Procreate, Indesign, Sketchup, Revit and AutoCAD. I have also developed my work through model making, creating visual and tactile pieces which both aid and explain my design.
I have a passion for sustainability which lead the design of my final thesis project. this earned me a nomination for the end of degree awards.
