About Me.

Over nine years, I studied a Bachelor of Multimedia, a Bachelor of Environmental Design and finally, my Masters of Architecture on the Gold Coast. During my studies, I was fortunate enough to learn about Biomimicry and experiment with the concept in my assignments. (Biomimicry being the principles of nature-inspired principles incorporated into the design). 

 

While completing a particular assignment in Architecture, as a way to relax from the gruelling hours of projects, I would often take a break and go to the beach and collect driftwood sticks, shells, banksia pods etc. and bring them home and sort them into boxes and study their shapes. I incorporated their forms into a design for an architectural building. Studying design in its many different media and forms developed a meaningful and lasting relationship which I continue to experiment with today.
