Lyn and Tony are Australian born artists living and working between Sydney and Byron Bay. They have worked together for over 15 years in a relationship that is almost symbiotic. Their work travels between photography, art, objects and accessories.

As photographers, they have worked with commercial clients such as Louis Vuitton, Lee, Chanel, Georg Jensen, Ksubi, as well as having contributed to international magazines such as BIG (NY),125 (London), Nico (Luxemburg), Oyster (Australia), Russh (Japan), Qompendium (Germany) among others.

The idea of handmade objects & accessories evolved as a project when acting as the Creative Directors on a fashion designers show for Mercedes Sydney Fashion Festival in 2008. Orders were placed immediately by key buyers for the Belinda Seper owned The Corner Shop. Influential Sydney store Poepke was next to encourage & support the unique label. Pieces also sold into the iconic design store, colette in Paris, in March 2009 as part of The Selby Popoup shop.
