Q. What was your background before KLC?
A: Before I began my studies at KLC I was studying Business and Management at Highlands College in Jersey. The subjects I studied included accounting, financial services, business relationship management, IT and numerical analysis, business information systems and macro and micro economics.
Q. Why did you decide to study Interior Design?
A: As part of my foundation degree at Highlands Collage Jersey, I was required to do a 3 month placement, which I worked in an interior design showroom - Designer Sofa Interiors. I have always been interested in architecture and how a space can influence how a person feels. After my initial 3 month placement, I went on to work there for another 5 months while continuing my studies along side, until I started my Degree at KLC.
Q. Tell us about your experience of the course?
A: My experience on the course has been very positive. I enjoy learning and challenging myself and found that came into play while studying. Looking back from the first year to the second year, you can really see the progress and development from everyone.
Q. What are your design interests/strengths?
A: I feel that my current strengths are creating cohesive FF&E boards, photoshop/rendering and having a clear vision of my design from an early stage which allows me to develop my concept more.
Q. What space inspires you?
A: Over the past two years while studying at KLC I have found myself always looking to spaces that represent nature or link to nature as they present the most natural forms, which I think is very important within design. Such as Thomas Heatherwick, with his Olympic Cauldron design and the New Routemaster Bus. As well as Zaha Hadid who's work is influenced by architecture, landscape and geology, integrating natural topography and human-made systems, leading to her ability to experiment with cutting edge technologies.
Q. Who is your favourite designer?
A: Frank Lloyd Wright is one of my favourite designers, well known for designing the 'Fallingwater' building.
Q. Where to from here?
A: From here, I would like to go on and complete my third year to achieve my BA (Hons) Degree and then go into mostly residential design, gaining connections and hopefully working my way up to becoming a senior designer.
