A few words about me

I have a passionate interest for the Arts, Fashion & Photography. I take pride in being a natural inquisitive person, a total egghead (cough cough) and have studied Interior Design. Wondering if you’re wasting your time here? Well, not at all, if you’re interested or involved in one (or more) of the following categories:

Born this way!  Ever since I was a child, I had a deep, inner need of matching colours, patterns, textures and cloths. My mother, early on, thought I was a bit…”unusual” but later on she would realise that I was anamateur- stylist in the making! 🙂 Over the years, my ardor for Fashion grew stronger and my room grew smaller; in terms of space that is. Fashion magazines were taking up most of my room. New trends? Not only was I already informed about everything but was also adding my own personal touch! 🙂

My love of fine art increased – the more of it I saw, the more of it I wanted to see. J. Paul Getty
Strange…the exact same thing is happening to me…and to you too, I’m sure. All forms of art absorb me…The visual arts: painting, sculpture, prints, and other visual media. AND the Performing arts: Music, theatre, film, dance, and other, as well as literature and other media such as interactive media. Wouldn’t you like to escape the crudeness of reality now and then? YES! We all do. That’s what ARTS can do for you. ARTS can be the means to make the world bearable.

has a key role in our everyday lives; so how could any of us opt out? Exactly…we simply could not! So, do take advantage of my geekinesh and insatiable thirst for tech and follow me up; thus discovering articles about the newest gadgets, discoveries, products etc.

Photography = an undeniable form of art. During the past four years, I’ve developed a keen fondness for photography as well. Here, you’ll be able to marvel not only the work of well-known but also of upcoming photographers.

And last but not least, Design and Architecture are the Areas of my Expertise and l assure you that I will not hold back whatever my keen eye has spotted.
