The Guardian Sphinx
In the beginning...
Since I can remember I have always had an obsession with Ancient Egypt. My first memory is from the age of 4. My mother, a doctor of Art History, was invited to lecture at the British Museum. I accompany her there, and we came across an Egyptian Art exhibition. To this day, my heart beats faster when I recall that significant moment, standing as if transfixed, gazing at a gargantuan mummy. I felt I was in the presence of something so familiar. In a way, it felt like being home.. And I was magnetized with no ability to move. This was the beginning of my world.
As a grown-up, I always felt a longing to Ancient Egypt. I have a full library of books on the subject, saw all the films, and flew around the world looking for exhibitions to quench my thirst.
When I completed my Master’s Degree, I started an exciting ‘affair’ with my second love, fashion. Working with leading fashion magazines and TV shows, I became an expert in the field.. My Egyptian obsession lay in the dark, waiting for me to return.
In my search for meaning and connection, In 2016, I finally started creating jewelry. I found myself designing ancient artifacts. Remnants from a world long forgotten. Every ring conveyed a secret power; each bracelet carried secrets of old cultures. People around me were fascinated by these creations, and stories of Ancient Egypt came back to haunt me.
At some point, it felt like I was reassembling a treasure. One that was scattered and lost many moons ago. At this point i began with sculptures and statues, and Ancient Egypt regained full possession over me. I left my work as a stylist and fashion journalist. I devoted my all to the art. I had to complete my long lost treasure so that everyone could share in the magic with me.
