FS: Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
MA: I am mainly a self taught artist. When it comes to jewellery design I did take professional training courses to understand the technical aspect necessary to design jewellery. I directed my focus towards arts after completing my education in business studies. As I had always wanted to become a designer but somehow i never got a chance to study arts.

FS: When judging a design as good or bad, which aspects do you consider first?
MA: I dont categorize a design to be good or bad. Design to me is a reflection of the designers state of mind or their inspirations and how confident they are to experiment.
