About:

I'm a fine artist, textile and fashion designer who brings an indulgent, bohemian romantic spirit to my creative endeavours. My illustratory style merges contemporary fine art, social and cultural commentary, and a childlike eye, to create designs that capture the attention and imagination through conceptual elements, storytelling and humour. With an original and authentic process, I find inspiration from a variety of sources, across all creative fields and subcultures, and with purity of spirit, express my ideas through line-work, digital design, mixed media, collage and screen printing. I have a clear vision that targets both the inner child and the social conscience within the context of the luxury marketplace. I grew up between Europe, South East and Central Asia, Australasia, and across the USA, and have a refined cultural sensitivity and societal awareness that enriches my creative work. I've dedicated myself to the pursuit of art of living all my life and this quest has been central to my inspiration as designer, artist and academic.

Designed to be worn in many ways to display different illustrative elements, if worn as a head scarf, the central Kal figure's eyes peer directly above the wearer's own...
