Wearable Art and the WOW Factor - Designers and Artists Group Exhibition
Art Statement: This project makes reference to the climate crisis that
is affecting the Planet today. I intend to highlight the fragility of
the fauna and flora and I invite the audience to reflect on the
importance of our environment.
