OTHER INTERESTS

 

My main passion is creating beautiful, hand worked bespoke art-objects and accessories

(www.objet-jlk.com). I also enjoy going to exhibits and have a keen interest in the world

of fashion & photography. Outside the creative field I am a bit of a nature enthusiast, love hiking

and immersing myself in the natural world. I also collect and grow orchids, as well as other tropical plants. Music also plays a big part in my daily existence, as I’m always searching out new and exciting sounds to soundtrack my day, and rarely spend a working hour without.
