STATEMENT OF ART:
For as long as I can remember, my mind tends to wander the moment I step outside into the world. Looking back at my younger self, I vividly recall taking mental notes of surrounding situations, spaces and objects. Critically assessing why things are the way they are.

Therefore, I was naturally drawn to “design” not just as a discipline but also as a catalyst for real change. With an innate personal process to re-envision ‘what could be’, “design” was the the choice of study for both my undergraduate and two post graduate diplomas.

Throughout my years of study, I have extensively familiarised myself with the core concept of Design Thinking. Through its application, I recognised that well-rounded solutions arise when insights are drawn from different disciplines.. It has since become abundantly clear that Design Thinking is not limited or defined by any one field; it is a way to apply design methodologies to many of life's situations.
