ABOUT

I am a cross-disciplinary designer and artist with an interest in a sense of belonging, from an individual level to communities and living environments. 

 

I prefer to work from bottom-up as participating people involved, using inner strengths and local resources while deepening the roots - especially in different communities and environments. In every project I think my position more like a learner than a teacher where I serve with my own competencies. I cooperate, facilitate, regenerate, design, create and come up with solutions.

My approach is holistic and every project is customized based on its purpose and need - from small-scale interventions to larger projects.
