“As a furniture and interior designer, I work with rooms as well as the objects within them. In my projects, drawing has always been a major part of both process and presentation. For me, drawing is the tool that can both explore and communicate my thoughts. When I was at art school, drawing was most important for me. I worked constantly to improve and was often disappointed with the results. It took years of practise before I finally felt that my pencil had become a reliable tool.
My projects often start with simple sketches and drawings that show concepts and shapes. These explorations can be both fast and accurate.
