“The choice of material was easy, I wanted a modern and glamorous material with many qualities and use it in a new way, mix it with antique design and use it in a more sculptural way. In the MISS ELLIE COLLECTION I continue to use the acrylic, mixed up with other materials, but still focused on patterns. “
