If you follow me on instagram, you are well aware that I have an obsession with shadows and shadow puppets. There’s something so wonderful about the simplistic silhouettes cast onto the wall, taking on a life of their own with the right amount of imagination. It’s little things like these that inspired me as a child. I remember spending hours with my hand shadow puppet book, trying to get every figure just right.

I built a few shadow puppet ladies (which I’ll show you later on) and they took on a life of their own against the natural morning light.


  1. Utterly Magical! I particularly love the one that shows your hand. There’s something about shadows that conjures up stories we’ll never hear…another world we’ll never really see.

  2. Now that you reside in NYC you must check out a show at The Met featuring a South African artists who is playing with shadow. I have just recently visited and this reminds me of it in a lot of ways! The artists name is William Kentridge in case you get the change to check him out.

    Keep up the amazing work!

  3. I love it.. it is like watching a Disney princess coyly enter our world. You are a wonderful inspiration for all the creative souls out there, thank you x
