Painter, Sculptor, Performer
Jon works with Dawn Stetzel. When we met them they were colonising a tree trunk and building miniature buildings, mines, gardens, walks, recycling centres within the nooks and crannies of the tree (which they found in the street and managed to get dragged into their studio).
They have a very interesting approach to modern living. Like nomads, they have an old school bus that they've adapted to running on oil discarded by restaurants. They find the things they need by rooting through skips and bins and then creatively adapting the objects. They carry ceramic mugs around with them to avoid using coffee shops' throwaway cups.
