Where did it start…

I guess my mom kind of always drove the artistry. We had an art cupboard at home. We just had arts and crafts stuff, you know tempera paints and the paper and construction paper and glue. SO when it was a rainy day we were doing art.

What drove it home…

Simon studied mechanical engineering went to school for mechanical engineering. “I went for mechanical engineering cause I liked building things and making stuff with my hands. With mechanical engineering they pretty much teach you how to make anything so that seemed like the thing for me.” Then, with his family of 5 travelling often, Simon and his wife taught their kids how to spot and locate their traditional blue and black bags on the busy airport carousel – not always an easy task!

Combining the love for childhood art, an interest mechanical engineering, and own personal family experience in travel, what started as a side hustle quickly expanded into a full-time endeavour.
