stories of eves } fatima & eve } part one

A few weeks ago I introduced Eve to my friend Fatima Fayez. The two got on like a house on fire, and now they are the best of travel buddies. Although Fatima was great at showing Eve around Kuwait’s finer sites, it is this trip that Eve will remember most dearly. Not only was she […]

1001 eves } eves come out to play

I wanted my Eves to have an official ‘coming out’ party so Noor and I set a meet-and-greet tea last night at her shop. The weather was lovely and Eve got to meet a few of our friends and family members. And somehow the event turned into an Eve treasure hunt. It was fun and […]

This is long overdue. I have been meaning to write a post about my visit to my new friends David Habchy and Hussein Nakhal’s Junieh studio since November. I ‘met’ David via Instagram (you must check out his gallery here) and flew to Beirut in October mainly to meet him. I wanted to explore his […]

uk days } part one

I am finding being in the UK rather difficult this time. I don’t know if it’s my long stay (two weeks) when I’m missing my kids already, Naz leaving tonight or the loneliness I’m feeling without *him*. It’s not like I hadn’t been here before without him in my life, but somehow it’s sadder this […]

stories of eves } creating eves

I’m creating thirty eves that I’m going to be sending off to a select number of individuals who I feel are going to take an active part in her story. Of course it’s an arduous process of drawing, cutting (hate the cutting!) and writing details on the back. Then there’s the posting which I actually look forward to. […]

girls explore } a visit to LB o J’zazz and other things

The girls visited my friend Lubna at her studio LB o J’zazz last week and decided to stay behind. That’s OK because I know Lubna’s taking good care of them.

For the past few month, my friend Bianca Simonian’s Almond Kulture was a mere Instagram/Facebook celebrity I adored from afar. I had no […]

Of course I had to take my little Eves to the countryside with me. Actually, these three were created in the cottage. I guess I can call them my Hadleigh girls. Or my Old Monkeys. This is a tour of the cottage through their playful antics.

I hadn’t realized how many Eves I’d shot and not posted here. As always, they’ve had weeks of antics, discoveries and the usual tomfoolery. My Eves chose this song for the post because they are a gaggle of drunken harlots tonight: The Cat Empire-The Wine Song
