People you would most like to collaborate with and why
Oh there are so many incredible artists and i don't know if I could pick just one so here are a few:
Zoe Bradley Design - her work is the perfect fusion between art, craft, design and fashion and her creations keep pushing large scale installations further and further. Adore her work.
Mr Finch Textiles - he works with found fabric and textiles to create the most incredible whimsical and lifelike creatures you ever saw. I'd love to create a paper garden for them to play in.
Marina Abramovic - incredible performance artist without comparison. A lot of her current work speaks to finding internal stillness and awareness of this moment and i really resonate with that. I reckon there's a similar presence that happens with meditative origami folding!
