About Me

Hello! ជំរាបសួរ!
I am Sopanha [so-pah-nee-ah]. Originally from Cambodia, but I've lived in New Zealand for over 9 years which has now become my second home.

I've always been interested in art and design from a very young age. My ultimate goal is to use design to create a better environment for our future living. I am very interested in speculative design and designing for the future. I am very passionate about all my projects. I love what I do and hope to keep expanding my knowledge.
