Disability Awareness teaching a workshop on how to create your very own vintage heart in a box frame.

This evening I was at Disability Awareness in Camberley. I was teaching a workshop on how to create your very own vintage heart in a box frame.
This workshop was for the carers, who look after there partners and children with head injuries and disabilities.
A wonderful charity, who put on these special evenings every six weeks. I felt honoured to give something back to people who have little time for themselves or rest bite.
The evening went down well and was very rewarding!! Everyone made there very own masterpieces. šŸ˜ƒ

Kaniez Abdi new website!




For those of you who know me well, you will know that I have been working on my website for the past two years. I am the biggest procrastinator and sometimes things take a lot longer to achieve than you realise or expect. It has been a cathartic experience looking back on my work and career and what I have done and achieved. This website is me and hope you like it!
Take a look it's live

Shah Cheragh is so inspiring and sparkly.

Regardless of your faith, the Shah Cheragh in Iran is a site worthy of reverence. The mosque is adorned with thousands of pieces of glass and tile that turn flickering photons into a radiant reflection of its name, "king of the light." Watch the video.

Amazing paper artist Chie Hitotsuyama

For most people newspapers are for reading, but for this artist Chie Hitotsuyama they they serve a different purpose. She tightly rolls up newspapers, to create incredibly realistic animal sculptures. The whole process is done by hand and she even uses the coloured print to enhance the contours and gradations of her pieces. Watch this video inspirational work!
