''My creativity is drawn from my unusual life experiences. Raised in children's homes as an abandoned child, to being kidnapped and spirited abroad where at 12 years old, I was forced to beg on the streets of Athens to survive. Stowed away on a boat to Crete, i lived in the Caves of Minoan Tombs in Matala living off the land. Spending 3 years living amongst Machiavellian people and German Hippies, i found solace in the ancient monuments around me, nature and the sky at night. I eventually hitchhiked back from Greece through communist Yugoslavia all the way to London by myself aged 14.''
