Searching for new and old
A dreamer in a cloud
Tell us a little about the origins of Girl in a cloud.
Girl in a cloud started in the last year of my Bachelor of Illustration degree, when I finally decided to do something with my catharsis of ideas. I started to draw some characters and play with different materials, I was just fascinated with sculptures and projections and started to create my own, thinking “I would love to make unique objects/sculptures for people to wear”. This is when I started transforming my resin sculptures into playful rings, bangles and other stuff. Once I started getting requests from my friends asking to create designs for them and seeing them wearing them afterwards I knew I had to keep going.
Describe your creative process.
To create I need a lot of visual stimulation and music. So before I start any new project I embark myself on a search for something unusual, something to inspire me. I like discovering new things and getting lost in the unknown. I have a collection of journals where I write all my ideas, inspirations, drawings and anything I want to remember, the process of creation for each one of my designs is very messy, a whole journey in itself. I take things from my studio to my living room, then back to my studio. Generally I take a lot of pictures and do a lot of analysis before I can say that a design is finished. Sometimes I go back to it and change the whole thing again. I like breaking things and putting them back together, changing their shape and essence in the process.
What inspires you the most?
I see beauty in odd things. My work is always inspired by a sense of wonder and the search of the unknown. New, fresh ideas inspired by this magical world and it’s hidden secrets. It is also inspired by music, fantastic realism, monsters, other cultures, mythology, faith, philosophy, old writers and human beings being human.
Name some of your most favourite local artists and designers.
I have a very eclectic taste. Some of my favorite artists are:
Where are my stars?
What are your ultimate dreams for Girl in a cloud?
I want to continue experimenting and creating, turning my ideas into something more solid. I want to travel and connect with other artists around the world. One of the things on my to do list is also to hold an interactive exhibition to showcase my projection work and music.
You will find some playful odd jewelry. Also A4 Prints, Postcards, stickers and a friendly girl to talk with about music, art and random things.
