Sketch with Kasia 1




Today during my class with gcse students we have discussed the importance of working on your skills continuously. The summer break is coming in the big steps now so we have set up a challenge to do art for minimum 10 minutes a day.


I love maintaining visual journal, especially during the summer , when you are on the go. It helps me to stay in shape with my drawing skills, and when you travel you see so many interesting things! You can see one of my travel journal here :).


We are going to do the challenge together! Year 10 (all other years are invited too) don’t bailout on me here! If any other folks would like to join use:


– and we can have a chat and I promise to leave a nice comment!

I am starting off with a little pencil drawing of a camel (and me šŸ˜œ ). I plan to turn it into a watercolour painting and use as a leaving card for my school.


Keep drawing!

Dear all,
I would like to wish you a peaceful and spiritual Ramadan ! I have made this painting in ink today especially for you. It is loosely based on the Cornishe Mosque in Ras Al Khaimah. Ramadan Mubarak from Kasia :)


It was really great for artists to get together and dive in into 2 and a half days full of art activities. Omani artist were very welcoming and the organization of the weekend superb! Big thanks to ZeeArts and Paragon Arts for coming together and making it happen!

I really love this description by ZeeArts !


I am very excited about artists exchange to Oman. organized by ZeeArts and Paragon Art. I am one of the 10 UAE based artist chosen to spend next weekend in Muscat where we will engage in variety of culturalĀ  activities, including an exhibition at The Wave. Such a treat!

Tomorrow is a first day of Sikka. If you are in Dubai come to the reception on Saturday 14 March at 7 pm in Fl Fahidi historical neighborhood. I will be there alongside with all the fair artists, and there is a lot to see!!


I have been busy for a part few weeks preparing artwork for Sikka Art Fair 2015. Sikka is an initiative for UAE based artists who are commissioned to create artwork which accompanies Art Dubai. It takes its name from the alleyways between the historic houses of Dubai. I am very proud to be part of this and had been working on a new piece which depict an Emirati Family seen through a women’s eyes. Have a sneak peak:

Following up there are 2 sketches from Corniche in Ras Al Khaimah. I really like my morning tete-a-tete with watercolours!

What a nice start of the day! As Simon is commuting to his new job in Dubai and needs to get up really early I try to make it easier for him and and leave the bed on the same time (5am, grrr!) But that leaves me with some time to spare on the morning and today I have decided to use it wisely and efficiently and sit down to work with some watercolours and enjoy myself. This is what came out of my little 30 min session. I am pleased with it and now want to paint some more!!!

Here in the UAE we still have a t-shirt weather, but understandably I am craving snow and ice as Christmas time is almost here. I love those photographs by Marko Korosec, they make me think about winter in Polish countryside. You can find more here
