SWAROVSKI & PAPER FASHION

It wasn’t long ago that I first began experimenting with Swarovski crystals on my artwork… and since that day, crystals have become one of my most prized mediums.

This time around, Swarovski asked me to create three illustrations; all about Mom. Just in time for Mother’s Day!

Join me at Swarovski in NYC tomorrow night, May 1, for a special evening celebrating Mom! I’ll be working magic with crystals…

CRYSTAL LOUBOUTINS

Once I laid my eyes on Nicole Richie’s crystal embellished Louboutins (via The Coveteur), I knew their whimsical essence had to be captured in paint…

I worked on my first fashion editorial just last year…and I loved it so much that I’m back for more! This time creating abstract watercolor backdrops. What began as a casual coffee conversation with my two friends, Misha and Debbie, quickly manifested into a fashion editorial; Fade to Black, in Tatler Hong Kong’s April issue.
