“Unlimited creativity to a high standard of both concept and execution, based on clear and well-understood client communication.”

Through many years of working in ceramic tableware, I’ve developed a deep understanding of the industry as well as of those whom it serves. My practice provides an unusually detailed bespoke service on both pattern and shape designs to our high-end hotel/restaurant clients, marrying beauty and practicality in an international, public and commercial context. I'm flexible with styles and I work strictly yet creatively within briefs. I deliver my high standard of professional designs through having an in-depth understanding of design, communication, the ceramic industry, branding and marketing. I take pride in understanding my clients’ needs thoroughly, solving their problems with well-finished products.

I deal comfortably with both “Western brands in Asia” and “Eastern products in the West” on a daily basis, due to my cross-cultural upbringing and experience. This bi-cultural fluency is one of my unique abilities, and it allows me to build strong bridges that connect my clients to their markets.

Since becoming Art Director at Legle France from July 2014, my main responsibility is leading the design team, while assisting the sales team in opening up a completely new market for the brand in Asia. Within the space of one year, I have delivered high-end tableware bespoke designs to the following clients: JW Marriot Macau, Park Hyatt Guangzhou, Waldorf Astoria Beijing, Four Seasons Seoul, Four Seasons Dubai, Four Seasons Kuwait, Wanda Hotel group, City of Dreams Macau, Rosewood Beiing, Peninsula Shanghai, Otto e Mezzo, and many more.

I’m also one of the founders of 1660 London. Our first product range ‘1660 LONDON tea tasting cups’ won the best new product prize at the World Tea Expo 2012, Our current clients are: Fortnum & Mason, Twinings, Barclays Asia. Our Stockists are: Fortnum & Mason, Postcard Teas, V&A museum, Amara.com, Companion Coffee.

Since 2008, I have also been deeply involved with Postcard Teas as Art Director. It was a two-year-old brand when I first joined the company and started working closely with Timothy d’Offay, its owner. We re-designed the packaging and the website, launching events and exhibitions as well as sourcing unique products. Now, after seven years, we collaborate with some of the finest British brands: The River Café, Balthazar, Umu, Quo Vadis, Café Oto, The Delaunay, Dock Kitchen, Fernandez & Wells, The Espresso Room, Taylor Street Baristas, Poilâne’s Cuisine de Bar, Prufrock Coffee, Margaret howell, among others.
