i started designing because i love the idea of sharing my tiny pieces of art with other people in a more tangible way. some of my designs are inspired by my childhood, growing up in a filipino household, surrounded by old singer sewing machines and danish butter cookie tins filled with needles and thread. i also love to create items based off of the little things that make me happy: films, books, forest findings, tea and croissants. i hope that i get to continue to explore, experiment, and design. but, more than anything, i hope that my work inspires the same sense of nostalgia and wonder that it does for me.
