'The omnipresence of technology, and resulting lack of tactility through digital printing, has pushed her to experiment with unconventional hand-printing techniques and mediums, creating relief-like structures that need to be experienced. She has an experimental approach to design, always looking to work with unexpected materials to create an explosion of tactility and colour.'
