Wire is a leather smith who specialises in hand made and
hand stitched leather bags and accessories, this is where this artist feels his
legacy lies. “I hope to inspire
and influence those who come after me to continue with and maintain the culture
of hand crafted leather goods. “
I’m first and
foremost an artist, I see myself as an all-rounder. For me everything I do
is a form of art because it is a form of expression, poetry, music or
collecting vintage clothing all these I do instinctively as a way to express
who I am and what I stand for. I love the process of creation, I love the
freedom in it.”

Television expanded my eye for creativity, it opened me up
to the arts. I grew up on music videos and Jazz, art and poetry explored in
movies on black love - Love Jones, I grew up on Viper and He-man. All this has
influences the work I do and the approach I use.
I discovered my love for photography in 2010, starting with
the club scene and progressing into editorials and advertising. I currently own
a studio with my best friend.
