DISCOVER the inspiration behind the new collection Urban Animals!
I find really fascinating to see how animals that live in proximity with people in urban landscapes, such as dogs, cats, pigeons, and the foxes in London adopt similar attributes and behaviours with humans, and how they have to adapt their lifestyles to ours.
I carved a selection of animals in wax that I embellished with Mohawks, spikes and dangling charms which are actually little poos and act as equalizers!
