‘Playing with Nature’ is an ongoing project featuring hand illustrated playing cards which are auctioned online to raise awareness and funds for marine wildlife conservation charities.
At least 6 million tones of debris enter the world’s oceans each year, causing widespread devastation to wildlife and the environment.
Over the years, profits from this project have been donated to Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and PADI Project Aware and.
Every year, International Clean Up Day hosted by Project AWARE, in partnership with Ocean Conservancy’s International Costal Costal Clean Up raise awareness about the effects of pollution in our oceans.
During International Clan Up Day, Project AWARE divers in more than 100 counties document every item found underwater to help prevent the marine debris epedemic affecting our planet.
A set of my illustrated playing cards were displayed at The Cube, London, as a part of Emerge 2010, at the London Design Festival, and at The Keeyley Gallery in New York as a part of Ocean Lifelines charity event in 2011.
