05 Jan Shireen the Artist
I am, as we all are, a storyteller.
My art uses the lens of fashion and style to express the story of our myriad ways of being beautiful, being affirmed, being seen.
I seek to honor and celebrate diversity, to create an inclusive platform to reflect our myriad identities and our narratives.
My work focuses on representing all our glorious and beautiful different ways of being and offers the viewer fashion art and illustrations that celebrate themes of diversity, inclusion and representation.
Employing the full spectrum of traditional to digital media, I find joy in moving from paint to pixels, using each “language” to express different ideas and messages. I find the humble brushstroke of black ink on the white page as compelling and powerful as the perfect, confident vector line. I choose media according to the subject matter and depiction style I feel best honors the essence of the story.
