I am an interdisciplinary designer and design educator and have been a proponent of all things sustainable long before it became a buzz-word. My family and I co-created and built our straw-bale home seventeen years ago. I am a multimedia artist who curiously explores the visible and invisible forces that form all things, working with various natural substances, such as plant resins, bee's wax, pollen, felt and sheeps wool. I am acutely aware of the need to find environmentally and socially sensitive ways of working and developing processes that envision more life-engendering ways of thinking and doing design. By engaging with artistic processes and deepening self-awareness I ensure that thinking does not override or inhibit the freedom to create.

"The major problems in the world are the result of the difference between the way nature works and the way people think."
(Bateson, 1972)
