Hi there! I’m an illustrator and art student with a love for writing and an affinity for design and content creation. This blog came about in May 2016, when I decided to combine my main passions along with several other interests and share them with any interested readers. Having grown up in a family of painters and musicians, art has always played a major part in my life. My childhood consisted of writing short stories and sharing a poem or two in Maltese newspapers, drawing, dancing Russian ballet and playing the piano – With fashion always having been a great interest of mine. I began illustrating clothing at the mere age of 6 and moved on to making clothing for my friends and myself, designing my secondary school’s graduation t-shirt, and ultimately partaking in Malta Fashion Week – before taking up a Fashion Styling course and earning my qualification in Fashion Design. At age 18, I moved to Paris for several months to work for Paris Fashion Week and gain some experience in the foreign fashion scene – My months in Paris were spent being filled with inspiration and working on my writing & drawing skills, as well as collaborating with other artists. At this point in my life, I realised that my studies did not feel artistically or intellectually stimulating enough and decided to focus my efforts on writing and the fine arts. And so, I’ve used this platform to mark my journey, share ideas and carefully-curated content.
This blog aims to reach out, and perhaps be of inspiration, to like-minded individuals with an appreciation for style and clothing, good food, honest writing and a visual journey of my need to curiously explore new places.
Thank you for visiting and giving this a read! <3
