I have recently been thinking about taking my work into a more sculptural direction and feel that lighting could be a way of doing this. At London Design Festival (LDF) I was inspired by a few designers; Louise Tucker, Salsabeel Amin, Mutton & Flamingo, Valentina Caretta, Melanie Porter and Fanatic House.
It’s quite hard to capture the characteristics of a person in a sketch. I did these so long ago (2008) and don’t know the models, so I’ve no idea if I did a good job, but I think they’re quite convincing!
I’ve had to make the hard decision to leave London and move back up north to my parents. It looks like setting up your own business is full of sacrifices! Hopefully it will all be worth it in the end….
