Birth and Concept
This company was formed in Jamaica, on October 2, 2005 - the first anniversary of my son's mysterious disappearance and presumed death. I decided to use his initials and a portion of his self ascribed pet name lil WOW to form the name of the company. Upon resigning from Cable & Wireless I was led to do something for myself. Warren had a lot of admiration for my talent and though he wanted to work in the field of science, he loved art...
