My name is Ampah Tivakam. I was born in a village in northern Thailand, close to the border with Laos and spoke only the
language of my birth up to the age of 14. I re-located to the UK in 1997 and, after settling in England, I had just a few years to learn English, come to terms with the culture and complete a formal school
education to the level where I could enter university. During 2005, I graduated with a First Class Honours degree from the Kent Institute of Art and Design.
Now based in Bermuda, I am a designer of bespoke
lighting solutions for home and commercial locations. I offer both design and manufacture of the product, on a commission basis, to customers anywhere in the world.
Although I have been concentrating on the
creation of lighting, my degree is in Applied and Decorative Arts so I am happy to discuss the design of any product, using any material, to which I can apply my unique creative ability.
