I have always been interested in creating things with different materials and medias, so when I got the chance I went and did Art and Design as a specialism at college. Since then I have been coming up and creating new ideas of my own especially in the up cycling area.
I literally try and up cycle anything I can get my hands on, meaning recycling something and making it better or different. Â This means most of the products I sell will be Â one of a kind. I have created mirrors using recycled wooden pallets and decorated Â them with natural and man made products, to make them into something very unique. I have also created vases out of used light bulbs and jewelry made out of fossils. Â The World of up cycling is endless.
Along side this I have created tye dye garments this includesÂ t-shirts and vests in adult sizes, but I have also created them for babies. The reason that made me want to create them for babies, was that when my daughter was born baby garments were only in certain colors which were your standard dull Â blue, yellow or pink. Â So I changed that and came out with these bright garments that you wont find anywhere on the High Street.
