Art-committed

I’ve strayed away from my blog for far too long. Getting myself back on track; this week I made an early visit to the Victoria and Albert museum for a spot of mint tea in their exquisite café and to enjoy their vast collection of art. The tearoom as always wrapped me into a layer…

Tate, Thames, Tea

Another week, another gallery/ museum. This week I was greeted by the large scale walls of an old power station, The Tate Modern. The prominent landmark is located in Southbank, an admiring walking distance from London Bridge station. Many pit stops were made along the way. The spacious gallery is brimming with inspiration, from its…

Mad about Liberty London

After my previous post, it was only fair for me to visit Liberty London. Located on the corner of Regent Street, the department store is clear as a bell with its Tudor-like frontage. Liberty was founded in 1875 by Arthur Lasenby Liberty. Its Grade II-listed Tudor replica was built in 1924 and was constructed with…

Absolut-ly Fabulous

As of late all I’ve been doing is working on submissions one after the other. I’m doing something that I used to shy away from and that was entering them. Times have now changed. I now believe in my work, credit myself (which I believe is important) and look for challenges to help me improve….

Her Theory

Another post based on an open call. This theme in particular is one I hold close to me. The theme is called “I am a women, this is my legacy”. Upon hearing about this challenge, I was excited to take it on; from the drawing board to the final touches, ideas kept leaping in from…

Keep Calm and Get Pining

I came across a Facebook post on how reaching a million views on Pinterest a month. my first thought was I wish I could say that, (right after thinking wow). I looked at my own Pinterest with less 10 images, I’m well away from even getting  triple digits. I, therefore spent all of today in…

Day At

So I spent a good hour at the British Museum shop, browsing the latest collection of stationary and books. I’ve visited the Museum many times and on many occasions I’ve breezed through, only to spend a good part of the visit at the shop. Why the shop? I hear you ask. Here, I find a…

Hello Colour

When I’m not looking for ideas, I’m browsing the internet for interesting colour palettes. Here, I wanted to share colourful images I recently came across on my favourite free, photo stock website, Unsplash. Being a total Pantone and dulux fan I could spend hours staring at colour and creating my very own colour-blocks. Now, what’s…

100 Day Art Challenge

No introductions needed, the title says it all. It’s been a week since I started this challenge and so far, so good. I’ve stayed true to my word and have dedicated sometime each day to this challenge. To help me stay committed, I have been updating my Instagram everyday. So far I’ve kept the artwork…

The Faraway Devotee

The most awaited time of the year for Muslim’s is finally here. It’s that time when Muslim’s cross the lands and seas to perform Hajj; a once in a lifetime religious obligatory for all Muslims. While thousands of lucky people are performing Hajj this year, I’m using this day as an inspiration for my art….
