She draws inspiration from anything and everything she loves. It could be people, movies, music, but most especially nature.
“For me, nature is the ultimate design. Drawing inspiration from its shapes and materials, partnered with the company’s dexterity and craftsmanship, my designs express a familiarity that I hope people will relate to and have fun with. ”

Our creative collaborators are very important in the growth of Co-Creative Studio. Coming from different design backgrounds and cultures from around the globe, our collaborators work hard towards the goals of the studio and share our love for natural material and craftsmanship. We look for designers who are passionate in the innovation of local material and see our designing process as a social experience.
"My first contact with the Philippines was more than 30 years ago at the Golden Age of Rattan and Buri. Arriving from France, Filipinos looked to me as the “MacGyver” for product developments but during the last 20 years, Filipino design has lost a part of their original spirits to European trends. e
Design and Fashion is constantly like a merry-go-round. Why don’t we go back to the roots of Philippine Design with innovative natural material and craft?"
