Can you tell us a bit about your work? How did you get started?
My education background is in interior design and I've been always interested in beautiful objects for home, especially how they are made. In 2014 I was looking for some fun activities and joined woodwork classes. I’ve enjoyed working with wood so much that I’ve started making my own objects and selling them at local markets and online. Over the years my product range has evolved as I was experimenting with different materials and designs. At the moment I’m working with an eco-resin, making colourful and funky objects for home. My main focus now is to facilitate terrazzo workshops and share the process of making these unique pieces with others.
