I recently collaborated with the lovely photographer Nyla Sammons and make-up artist Babs Forman to create an experimental fashion shoot to which I gave the title 'Shamaness'. I have been meaning for sometime now to start exploring more the territory of styling and photography and there will be more work of this nature to show in the near future :-) I styled this shoot with Plastic Seconds jewellery and one-off props and backgrounds I created. I focused on the theme of an imaginary female Shamaness wanting to emphasise the need for the awakening of the feminine in our world. Having read quite a bit on Shamanism recently, I am feeling excited about the ways in which this ancient wisdom can be used in our contemporary lives to enrich them and to improve our relationship with ourselves and our planet. I was subsequently asked by Cent Magazine to create illustrations with my illustrating alter ego Slowly The Eggs to accompany this shoot - the result followed the magazine's JUXTAPOSED theme for November and you can see it published here!
