With an  extensive  experience in numerous art fields it was their love of Community Arts, in particular that of Carnival arts which bought the two artists together.
Within this area individually they have created and lead children groups, managed outstanding art departments and been involved in the London Olympic Get Set events.

Work they have directed has been included in The Burning of the Clocks Brighton ,  The Brighton Festivals Children’s Parade, Uckfield Big Day out to name just a few.
