REFUGEE CRISIS

50% of all profits will be donated to charity to tackle each individual issue addressed.

We would like to thank everyone who bought one or more prints during last years Art Car Boot Fair in September and December and 2018.

We generated £1,000.00 of donation money within 2 afternoons by selling these prints to the public.

Please help us help this planet and the survival of all living species - including us humans - who sadly are mainly responsible for all the catastrophes we are facing on earth.

We can all make changes if we consider our own actions and habits and develop more empathy for every living creature on this beautiful planet.

Think twice about what you buy, use, trash, how you commute and the list goes on. Almost all of us grew up with the comforts of this modern life, but we never thought and faced the consequences which are now revealing day by day. Take the bike or walk if you can and leave the car behind - try and reduce buying polyester and acrylic fashion as their fibres are already in our food chain and your own most likely have ended up in your own or neighbours stomach. We all can't be perfect, but we can all try and become as perfect as one can within our lifetimes!

Our papers are from sustainable kept forests in the EU to cut down the carbon footprint and be as sustainable as we can within our own product range, trying to have the least impact on our eco system and world.

Below are some heartbreaking stories Tania shared with us about the stories of the people included in her 2 photos which we included to this collage.

Here are some of my pics from the field covering the Rohingya crisis. I only have captions for 2 of the images. All these pictures were taken during the mass exodus last year. Feel free to send me a photo of the mural when done! Hope I'm not too late


Picture 1 caption This is Nurkaita. She’s only 10 years old. The Myanmar military forces burnt her home to ash, and shot her mother and father to death in front her just a month ago. She walked by foot to Bangladesh by herself. Today, she still bears a scar on her left eye. She tells me the Myanmar army beat her in the face as she fled. Her memories are still fresh as she speak. The horror follows her. I watched her continue to hide behind bushes though she was in the safety of the refugee camps.

Picture 2 caption It was dusk when Jinat Ara (second to left), and her sister Shafiqa (third to left) watched 4 men dressed in uniform storm into their village in Buthidawng, Myanmar. Their father, a farmer, shielded them as bullets sprang at him. They ran, as he died immediately. Outside, they said they saw hundreds of huts in flames. They heard their aunties howling as they were taken away into the jungle. They slipped on rocks, as shots were fired at them till the sounds faded. 7 days later they crossed the Naf River into Myanmar. This is the#rohingya crisis
