Their friendship grew from their passion for the creative world and their love of cats.
Together, Gary and Harrie have a joyful work ethic and have developed a unique process to create work together. The duo aims for the project to Increase engagement in the arts by creating a gateway for music folk to connect to the visual art world and art folk to the wider world of music.
