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.

Sheep in Wolf's Clothing

'Sheep in Wolf's Clothing' duals as a tribute to Hunter Thompson, legendary Gonzo journalist, and to all other rough and tumble romantics across time. The nature of this collection began with the desire for a debaucherous, yet educated look and an eccentric yet classy look. With the American dream in mind, I used the writing of Hunter Thompson, other literary geniuses, as well as my own personal romantic infatuations, to create a womenswear collection drawing inspiration from menswear in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. The idea was to create a sexually androgynous power clothing collection for women who desire to feel eccentric, offbeat, yet completely in control of themselves and every situation. I drew inspiration from poker players, gamblers, and Las Vegas grunge characters, and from Hunter Thompson’s most famous work ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’. I wanted to play into the apocalyptic fantasy land, which I feel is a timelessly popular and contemporary romanticism. Hunter Thompson was described by many as a moralist posing as an immoralist. He was a journalist who spent a lot of time consorting with politicians, rock stars of many shapes and forms, and particularly the Hells Angels. Like a sheep in wolf's clothing, he lived and walked with monsters, and actually, monsters wanted Hunter to think they were cool. As a career woman, being a sheep in wolf's clothing can be a tremendous asset and can aid in keeping one's soul alive in the face of reality.
