‘Planet Earth’ is our ‘Eternal Path’ - therefore everything else is secondary, we must shift our focus to sustainability and raise awareness every chance we get.

Frieze is a homophone of Freeze and London is the most significant.
What do you hope art intervention will achieve?
To change peoples perceptions in order to trigger action; this is a movement.

Their works are made by Mother Nature mine is Manmade, in order to demonstrate the fact that we hold the power but must use it for good.

Change is the only constant, the key is to be able to adapt. I have evolved my process and sustainability is at the root and forefront.
You’ve been granted the ability to send a message to 16-year-old you. What do you say?

It’s not a job, it’s a way of life.
