Graduation year

2018

I was born in Thailand and spent my formative years there until moving to the UK in my early teens. I feel comfortable with the culture of both countries, seeing myself as a cultural hybrid influenced by the rich heritage and history of my birth country, but also attracted to the advanced technology aesthetic of the UK and London. I feel this dual cultural background does not limit my outlook in my design processes but enables me to see and appreciate a diversity of ideas and influences. I define myself as one of a younger generation who is passionate about traditional textile techniques and fine handicraft which is disappearing as technology advances in this fluid digital world.
