Kazz is a multidisciplinary artist working in graphic, visual and experience design.

Kazz works in 2D and 3D and in analogue and digital modes to bring her quirky world come alive. Her work is playful in nature and has a certain tactile feel. She is driven by the belief that art has the the power to enrich human interactions and connections.

She also works as an experience designer with a passion for museum learning. She is always exploring how designs can make museums a memorable and equitable place. Her practice-based doctoral thesis is all about using dog-inspired characters and communication methods used in Japan to make art museums an accessible, joyful and polyvocal space.

Kazz’s soft and light hearted designs are deeply grounded in research. Her participatory projects, such as Go Walkeez and the Museum of Human Kindness, have received national and international recognitions for their innovative approaches.

Her field of expertise includes:

  • Experience and interaction design
  • Participatory design
  • Visual communication design
  • Instructional media design
  • Play as a mode of learning
  • Fundraising for creative projects

An engaging public speaker, Kazz is an active supporter of creative initiatives. She is actively involved in the creative community as a practitioner, collaborator, consultant and mentor.

Currently, she is finishing her PhD in museum learning design at the Norwich University of the Arts. Previous to this, she spent over a decade in the field of Japanese art research. She works in English and Japanese.
