ABOUT ME

I AM A CREATIVE.

 

I AM   DESIGNER, PHOTOGRAPHER, SURFER, SURF INSTRUCTOR AND BEACH LIFEGUARD.

MY INSPIRATION.

 

I HAVE AN IMMENSE INGRAINED LOVE FOR CREATIVITY AND SPORT.HAVING GROWN UP ON THE SOUTH COAST OF CORNWALL MY LOVE FOR THE SEA HAS BEEN PRSENT FROM THE GET GO. HOWEVER, IT TOOK A WHILE TO FIND THE SPORT THAT ALLOWED ME TO EXPRESS MY CREATIVITY. 

HAVING TWO NATIONAL TITLES IN TWO DIFFERENT SPORTS AND HAVING CAPTAINED MY REGINAL TEAM FOR FOUR YEARS IN A ROW IN A THIRD SPORT, THE SPORT THAT FINALLY ALLOWED ME TO EXPRESS MY INGRAINED CREATIVITY WAS SURFING.

 

THE SEA IS A HUGE INSPIRATION IN MY CREATIVITY, A 7 TIMES WORLD CHAMPION SURFER STEPHANIE GILMORE ONCE SAID “SURFING IS LIKE DRAWING ON THE FACE OF A WAVE”. 

EDUCATION.

I HAVE GCSES IN FINE ART AND DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY. I STUDIED UAL’S EXTENDED ART AND DESIGN DIPLOMA AT TRURO AND PENWITH COLLEGE. DURING THAT TIME I HAD WORK EXPERIENCE AT THE ONE OFF LONDON, A CREATIVE DESIGN AGENCY. MY TIME WAS SPLIT BETWEEN THE GRAPHICS AND PRODUCT DESIGN TEAM.I AM CURRENTLY IN MY THIRD YEAR OF UNIVERSITY STUDYING BA/HONS SPORTSWEAR DESIGN AT FALMOUTH UNIVERISTY.

MY ETHOS.

MY ETHOS IS TO DESIGN TO REDUCE THE NEED TO CONSUME. I BELIEVE EMOTIONAL ATTACHMENTS AND SENTIMENTALITY IN DESIGN IS KEY TO SUSTAINABILITY..

I AM INSPIRED TO DESIGN TO REDUCE THE NEED TO CONSUME, DESIGN WELL, DESIGN TO LAST AND AM INSPIRED BY TIMELESS CLASSICS THAT NEVER " GO OUT OF FASHION" TO IN CREASE LONGEVITY OF DESIGN.
