What’s your favourite tool?

My sketchbook, because it has no real limitations or restrictions.

What techniques do you use most?

I don’t have a set way of working or approaching a project, but most recently screenprinting and laser cutting.

What has been your favourite piece you’ve created and why?

It would probably have to be my Make Mistakes project, because it hopefully embodies my working process – a strong playful and conceptual idea that evolves and grows across multiple media and platforms.

E-book book is a project that explores our changing relationship with the book. It’s a collaboration with designer Jack Phillips.

Make Mistakes is an ongoing and interactive project that explores the importance of mistakes in the creative process. Drawing tools that generate mistakes were designed and used to reinterpret objects and ideas that are considered perfect.
