ABOUT :

        I have MA in Film Design from the Royal College of Art, London. My interest lies in visual mnemonics and the way we remember, imagine and dream. I am fascinated with visual portrayal of characters, spaces and atmospheres soaked in idiosyncrasy as well as motifs of timelessness and uncertainty. Recently I’ve been also captivated by the importance of humour. The playful, childlike curiosity and approach to life is probably the only thing I wish to take seriously.
