#Hygge

Huh-what? #Hygge seems to be the trend word for ‘cosy-ness’ for 2017 and I find that quite charming. The concept as such is not new, it’s a modernised hedonistic approach to life, but it’s interesting to see how it has now surfaced through this ‘hug-sounding’ word and its Danish roots. It’s just the right time as well […]

What Dreams are Made Of

Aren’t dreams supposed to be light, transparent, intangible? I have, even more in recent weeks, come to the realization that what actually dreams are made of is blood, sweat and tears. When a dream has a substance, when it wants to come to life it becomes heavy and hot like cast iron in your veins. It […]

Time-keeper

One of the little paradoxes of time I find for myself is that you can only ‘keep’ it after you’ve spent it.

The Art of Bryan B Kelly

Being one Saturday at my Ichtys exhibition at the East Lodge, LSA, I had the pleasure of getting to know the artist Bryan Kelly whose studio – ‘a little room of happiness and joy‘ (as described so well by one of his visitors) – is located at the same building at the end of Jephson Gardens. […]

Getting Published

One of the most challenging endeavors for both models and photographers is getting your work featured in fashion magazines.  Where should you start from? 1.Make a list of magazines you would like to get featured in and send them individual, personalised e-mails. And make it big: the more, the merrier. This does NOT mean you have to compromise […]

Sunshine piercing my soul

‘I want the sun to shine through me, not on me.’ These words which I recall from a movie seem to be resonating in my mind reminiscenting the experience of the ‘Art in the Park‘ festival at which I was exhibiting as Marie Muller for a first time this year. It’s utterly overwhelming, these two days […]
