Hello, is it me you’re looking for?

March 9, 2017

It’s not everyday you get asked to be in a feature for Hello – so when the writers asked if I would be interested, I was like…errr…hello!?!?!?! Of course i would!!! Jokes aside, I was thrilled to be included in their vibrant “Girls about Town” article. It was all about women from Dubai making waves in the creative industry from different disciplines. There was a great mix of careers from acting to fitness and we were all brought together for our mutual love for fashion and couture. The shoot was styled by Rao Ali Khan who is a celebrity stylist […]

Nailing’ it with Essie

October 26, 2016

Frankly, I don’t like regular nail polish – gel is perfect for someone fidgety like me. I find that whenever I get a manicure with regular polish, no matter HOW still and zombie-like I hold my hands out … rest assured, there is always, always a smudge. The only major bummer about gel is the tedious waiting time. This has become a thing of the past thanks to Essie who have combined the best of both products and have launched their new “gel couture” range. It acts like gel in terms of the look, feel and durability BUT it’s actually […]

Loosening up with Jacqueline Bissett

August 1, 2016

I think the moment I fell in love with fashion illustration was when I first laid eyes on the amazing, glamorous illustrations sketched on Jackie Collin’s book covers. They were always so feminine, fluid and loose with a modern, minimalistic pop of color that was so eye catching to me! These drawings had such personality, sass and drama – a perfect match to the seductive and sexy stories I was addicted to! Over the years, I started recognizing the same illustrations everywhere on luxury brands like Thomas Sabo, Selfridges and Mac. Last week, in a perfect twist of fate, I […]

Summer studio workshop at Harvey Nichols

July 8, 2016

I love to teach illustration but don’t always get the opportunity due to being swamped with projects buuuuut when Harvey Nichols approached me and asked me to be part of their Summer Studio line up, I couldn’t resist! This Summer, Harvey Nichols Dubai had a series of interactive workshops which included photography, fashion and styling. If the classes weren’t enticing enough,all guests who attended each received a AED200 complimentary voucher to use in the store’s Beauty Department..AND the classes were free! Pretty great trade off if you ask me. Nice one, Harvey Nichs. I hosted two workshops in June and […]

JLT Outdoor Gallery

May 21, 2016

You know what Dubai needs MORE of? (hint..it’s not a mall) Street Art!!!!! Im a big fan of outdoor galleries and the energetic vibe they bring to open spaces – which is why I was stoked when I got the opportunity to create a mural for the region’s first outdoor gallery situated in Jumeirah Lake Towers. JLT’s Art Outdoor Gallery is an exciting project launched by Concordia and it’s all about bringing art to the community by creating a platform for local artists to promote themselves by allowing them to reach a larger public. They provided all the artists with […]
