Karolyn Martin is an interdisciplinary designer and artist. She has an unconditional love for raw material, from wood to fiber. Having experience in woodworking and sewing, she gives priority to local, renewable or reclaimed materials to create in various spheres: from space and furniture design to garments and accessories. In 2014 she received a Concordia Undergraduate Student Research Awards (CUSRA) supervised by Professor Carmela Cucuzzella. In 2015 she completed her BFA in Design in the Department of Design and Computation Arts at Concordia University. This academic adventure led her toward a profound desire to learn more about origin an transformation of raw material considering ecological and social implication. She is now continuing her study in the Master of Design at the same institution. Her intention is to actively participate on society changes concerning consumerist behaviors.
“I think that we must design like humans should live: in total consciousness that we are all linked, as we are in a constant relation with Earth."
