I have always been passionate about art and even more so about reducing waste and turning what others have once seen as trash into artistic treasure. The inspiration behind my collections started with single-use coffee capsules, the beautiful colours inspired me to find creative ways they could be saved, appreciated and not end up in landfills.
I have worked with a number of high profile clients including South African comedian and The Daily Show Host, Trevor Noah, Actor and Environmentalist, Adrian Grenier, Entrepreneur, Gary Vaynerchuck, Kris Fade, a radio presenter for the Kris Fade radio show on Virgin Radio Dubai, Black Coffee a world-renowned DJ and producer and Mason Plumlee an NBA basketball player for the Denver Nuggets. As well as larger corporations such as Nespresso, Costa and DXB.
The most successful exhibition was a collaboration with Costa Coffee and DXB Airports to exhibit a 2x2x2 meter sculpture made from 60,000 straws. The piece was exhibited at DXB to create awareness of plastic waste for World Environment day.
I have also been awarded the most Most Sustainable Design and Highly Commended awards at the Surge for Water ‘design, dine, make a difference’ event.
