I have always been a creative person. I show my skills through art, fashion and makeup artistry. 3 years ago, my sister and I started our own business YFL Studio. We are two people that have completely different interests that can collaborate and explore our creative side through makeup artistry. Building YFL Studio hastaught me the importance of professionalism and client communication.I’ve always had a passion for interiors. I remember going to site visits and being captivated by the designand construction process. It was, and still is fascinating to me how a place so bare can transform by fusing different materials, colours and textures.
I’ve always loved chasing my creative side, producing anything from drawings using different mediums, lino-cut printing and photography to designing interiors. Using my inspiration and ideas to create original works of drawings and art, my passion for design only grew from there.
I’m interested in creating beautiful yet functional spaces that enhances the overall user experience and promotes well-being. I enjoy the design processes involved in the development of different projects to create unique and aesthetic environments specific to the brief. Having experience previously working in hospitality, I have a clearer understanding of how people use and interact in these public spaces. I want to pursue design in this area, as well as challenging myself to a range of different residential and commercial projects.
I am graduating with an Advanced Diploma in Interior Design. I have always loved the idea of interior design, creating a space in a way that someone may have never have thought of. Over the last 2 years I have learnt many valuable skills and out of the box ways to approach a project. I have also gained proficient technical skills in Cad, Sketchup, Revit and perfected my skills in Photoshop. I have always had a creative side which I explored with textiles, woodwork, photography, media and now interiors. Having creative parents who have always pushed me to strive for the best I can be, has helped me believe in myself and the way I design.
I have always loved design. I believe it has such a vital role in the way we live and interact in our everyday lives. Beautiful, functional spaces can make us think more clearly, can make us feel calmer, bolder, happier…can bring us together, can provide that quiet oasis we sometimes crave…so why wouldn’t we spend the time to get it right. This is my ethos, and this is my desire.
I have always found myself with an eye for design. In my spare time I couldn’t help but pick up the pencil. My passion was quickly ignited and was something I realised I didn’t want to ignore. From drawing stars to designing fashion pieces and forever homes, I began to appreciate the importance of understanding the way people function in a space. It is important that you can take what you create on paper and explore ways of bringing your inspiration to life.
I’m interested in how good design impacts on our lives and the way we feel. Since we spend most of our time indoors, it’s important that our homes, offices and entertainment venues promote a sense of wellbeing. Many factors affect our mood, perhaps the most import of these are natural light, colour and acoustics. As a designer, I want to work with clients to transform their interiors into a functional yet beautiful space that evokes a positive emotional response.
I have been interested in all things design for as long as I can remember. From buying and indulging in as many magazines as I could get my hand on and watching home renovation shows. Visiting open homes on the weekend was more exciting than going to the toy shop. I have always helped family and friends with paint, fabric and furniture choices. I loved drawing house plans as a hobby from a young age. My family has always fostered hands on approach to all aspects of building and owning your own home.
