“Into parallel worlds and good vibes on & off the wall.”

Artist Statement

…“Over the last few years I have set up my own business in leather goods (with 12 interns at one point) working from my in-house atelier in East London. I later closed the business and moved to New York then LA. It was during this time in 2012 where I discovered that this life change was part of my Saturn Return journey at 28 years old and my Awakening.

The experiences I have had since then in the US have made me the person I am today. I have obtained an 01 Visa that is virtually impossible to attain, my works have been picked up by renowned institutions and museums, I have dined, slept and taken drugs with the rich and famous (I will not name names) on Mulholland Drive and Hollywood, I have experienced demonic forces wanting to take me away from The Light, I have undergone exorcisms, met Satan himself, been in and out of an LA cult survived and kept my brain, body and integrity intact, I have been in yoga studios in Venice Beach, I was involved with the tribe of Wanderlust https://wanderlust.com/gbr/ in LA and Hawaii), healed and initiated festival goers with Tribal Markers https://www.tribalmarkers.com/ , danced and was an ambassador for the now growing phenomena that is Daybreaker https://www.daybreaker.com/ from 4 am, posed in music videos for gangsta rappers, been in a toxic relationship with a narcissist in Santa Monica, at one point lived in my Culver City Art studio, created workshops on a shoestring, traipsed Beverly Hills with a tube of art work one very hot summer to get picked up by a gallery, sold my work on a weekly basis... Why am I sharing this? Because I see myself as a badass, healer and entrepreneur. This is why I share my messages on Youtube, this is why I have what it takes to be a lifestyle coach, this is why I am not just 'an artist', this is why I inspire, this is why I teach, this is why I don't feel the need to be showing my backside to get 'likes', this is why I am real, I am committed to always being crystal clear, loving and a creative leader, this is why I am here.”
