As a designer, Tia’s interests lie in the ability to blend materiality and innovation through the exploration of new approaches to existing object- creating methods. Her current body of work can be characterized as an exploration of a multitude of material practices. Spanning from wood to textiles and digital, a process of discovery is depicted within the projects she has been a part of over the past few years. Tia, being a maker as well as a designer, takes pleasure in learning new crafts and therefore thrives on the accumulation of material languages. Thus, she is a collector of media practices, a generalist in a constant search for new ways to express ideas through art, craft, and design.
