Making animals out of jackets,

not the other way around.

 

Art is a side project to my film career and as such I only produce a small number of pieces each year and I exhibit around 6 at a time. 

 

It's a simple reversal of killing an animal to make a jacket and a lot of my pieces focus on endangered animals. The seed of the idea came from a production design job where I had to make a wolf mask out of leather for a film and I recycled a broken leather jacket for the materials.

 

Over the last couple of years I have created and sold many of these eco-friendly animal trophies. I've been blessed to have the opportunity to exhibit in various galleries in Australia and abroad and I recently had the honour of bringing home 2nd Prize at the Barcelona International Art Fair at Museu Marítim de Barcelona in December 2016.
