Emma Wallace

"Deep in the heart of the eclectic art district of Sheung Wan, Emma Wallace, the formal ready-to-wear brand, has opened the doors of its first boutique in Hong Kong.  With graffiti artist Invader’s work watching over the store and an array of antique shops and art galleries around every corner, Po Hing Fong is the perfect location for the unique brand.

A chic, clean monochrome interior sets the perfect backdrop for the colourful clothes and accessories selling in store.  The clever mixing of British interior decor with antique Chinese furniture clearly cements the brand’s passion for a fusion design style."

I was delighted to be invited to illustrate 3 key looks from the collection, to customise for guests at the opening cocktail party. 

I was also dressed by Emma ❤️❤️❤️

Enlighten & Empower

 

I am excited to be visiting Nepal for the first time, to run the Temple to Temple (Stupa to Stupa) race this weekend, and to meet Mira Rai to find out more about her Exchange And Empower programme, which aims to provide talented young female runners in Nepal the opportunity to broaden their horizons, experience different lifestyles, and share their stories and culture with others <3

Here is an illustration I did to celebrate the race, featuring Mira and the two temples, from Swayambhu Stupa to Boudhanath Stupa.

Here is a flyer I designed to be distributed at the recent Women in Adventure Film Tour, which I MC'd. Basically, 2018 is all about promoting incredible female athletes :D

Cali Triptych

I spend a fair amount of time in Los Angeles, Venice in particular, and I'm hugely fond of this part of the world. On my recent trip I discovered some unprimed wooden panels at the local art store and decided to try working on something a little different whilst I was here. 

I took influence from the beach palettes of my daily runs along Venice Boardwalk:

Venice Boardwalk, Los Angeles

Produced in the afternoon sunshine, powered by green juice and avocado on toast, I produced a triptych study of hands and hair - something I am currently obsessed with drawing. 

Pencil, charcoal, and acrylic on unprimed wood panel. 8 x 10"

Let me know what you think :) 

For a great guide to what to see and do in Venice, check out this blog post by The BLDG 25 Blog.

As a British native, living and working as a fashion illustrator in Hong Kong, it was a huge privilege to be invited to live illustrate guests at their annual ball this year :)

Jenn Shelton

Total privilege to be asked by Jenn Shelton, an American ultramarathoner who has set course records in several of the most demanding American ultramarathons and has run the fastest 100 miles ever recorded by a woman on dirt, to paint her portrait for her new website.

Massive girl crush and runspiration. Swoon.

Here is the finished image, along with a time lapse I shot of some of the progress:

The Helper Documentary

I am donating custom portrait artworks to backers of The Helper Documentary, to help raise funds to get this film made. There are currently more than 330,000 migrant domestic workers living in Hong Kong. All too often, they are overlooked and dehumanised. At worse, they are abused and mistreated. We want to tell some of their stories and help to change the way they are viewed within society.
