To me, good design realizes the potential of any space. It involves considered choices teamed with a sense of bravery. As a designer, I have a strong understanding of how interiors come together, from the architecture of a space to the furniture and soft furnishings that fill it. Colour palette, material choice, and finishes are all equally important - each element is essential to creating one cohesive look that is both resolved and innovative.


On a personal level, I have an immense appreciation for any person who has the ability to create. It is my passion to help creatives in the field of design. I am constantly looking for creativity and skill.  When implementing these talents with interior design or architecture their creations will exhibit a story about the people who created them.


Graftink was founded in 2010 and I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some exceptional clients on projects that span from residential refurbishments and new-builds to key commercial and hospitality fit-outs. With over 15 years experience and an Honours Degree in Interior Design and South African Council of Architects registration, I have been designing spaces with an innate talent to create balance and visual comfort.


As a designer, I am required to design ultimately for my clients. This flexibility, along with an ever-changing industry has imbued me with an innate sense of creative freedom. Today, contemporary design has to encompass several key issues: financial, social, and importantly, environmental points of view, all of which need to be addressed by the client and designer, together.
