I like to explore new ideas, try and do different things and meet new people. I just simply hate things that are repetitive, and I love how design makes me feel. I've been interested in art and graphics, including doing graphic designs, traditional arts and photography since I was little and I still fall more in love with it everyday.
New to the design industry, but not new to the passion for creativity or individualistic ideas. I decided to make the jump from the British Army, to the Oil & Gas industry, to Design, due to my eye for unique concepts that can capture and hook you in an instant. I’ve always been one to doodle and recognise the value of a “brand” through film, music, and my surroundings while living in the artistic zone of East London – but once the lockdown inspired me to create my own Hot Sauce brand, “Hottori Hanzo”- marketing, designing, and selling it myself - I was hooked into the realm of design and everything the creative industry has to offer. Shillington was the clear next step which has distinctly broadened my horizons and allowed me to find my voice, and I can’t wait to see where my passion brings me next.

Ilva is a rare species. She's an extroverted Latvian once she gets over her shyness, initially. She has been dancing her whole life, which has taught her many things that she's implemented into every aspect of her life. "It's not about the possibility of falling. It's about how you catch yourself if it happens and make it look like it was part of the performance. As well as self-discipline, pushing yourself constantly, and understanding the work that has to be put in before you can see the results." For Ilva, design is about making people feel specific ways when they experience the works.
