About Me


To sell some of my origami lamps!


Umm.. I'm a bit addicted to travelling, which comes from my parents I think! I spent my first few years moving from city to city around Europe, living in a caravan in various safari parks as my Dad was a sea lion and dolphin trainer. We finally stopped off in Stirling, Scotland where I grew up. I lived in Germany for a couple of years and will be moving to Paris or Milan in September to finish my Masters.

I've been floating around for the last couple of years as I took a break from my course. I just got back from Bangalore, India where I was doing an internship designing origami lamps. I love to fold paper and draw, I'm a little obsessed actually! In April I will showcase the series of lamps I've been making, yay! It will be my first exhibition so I'm super excited! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I haven't done any couchsurfing yet. I've been wanting to for years (literally) but for one reason or another it never seems to happen! Looking forward to my first couchsurf experience but also a little nervous!


Illustration, graphic design, playing piano, origami, travelling, fashion, product design, visiting abandoned buildings/places, knitting, sewing, want to start dress-making!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was about to write swimming with elephants or something equally cheesy but to be honest the first thing that came in to my head was being in hospital in India. That was pretty amazing, but more in an eye-opening, horrifying sort of way!
