Material Maker & Researcher
Anoushka works as a material maker and researcher. Her main focus is crafting materials from abundant organic waste streams, often combining historical practices with modern contexts. With a background in Textile Design and Material Futures her ambition is to create objects that speak of their material origin, highlighting the need for a change in material values and notions of waste. Anoushka works on a number of personal projects, client briefs and runs workshops for students and industry.

Material Lab Curator
Anoushka set up a Material Lab and Material Library at Green Lab in London which launched in early 2019. The Material Lab is a space for experimental material research, encouraging practitioners to explore the notion of what a material can be and often diverting waste streams into creating something of value. The Material Library is a physical documentation of newly developed material alternatives. Sourcing samples from both small scale practitioners at the early stage of their material developments to larger companies producing materials for industry, the library showcases the sustainable material options being developed and researched.

Art work & Illustration 
Anoushka also creates drawings, illustrations, paintings and prints. Her biggest collection to date has a focus on the sea and documents the various species that inhabit our oceans. With a love for the stark contrast of black and white most of her work focuses on intricate representations of her subject. Based at Bainbridge Studios in West Norwood most of her work is screen printed in limited editions.
