Melanie Sykes interview

Met the gorgeous Melanie Sykes yesterday. She popped down to my studio to get her portrait done and interview me for her website www.melaniesykes.com (coming soon). She has a section where she interviews celebs, entrepreneurs , sports personalities etc so I felt honoured to be asked! We had a lovely frank conversation over lunch and got on like a house on fire- what a lovely down-to-earth woman. Watch this space for the upcoming interview....

'LA's Hottest Ticket'- Variety Magazine & Women in Film and Television's celebration @ Gracias Madre

Painting @40 guests as speedily as possible last friday night in LA was my most pressured job to date! Working with LA illustrator Sunny Gu, who was also drawing like crazy. Our mission from Rue La La, sponsors of the event was to "paint each guests in 2 minutes"- we did assure the client that was impossible but we would do our best!!!

It was packed with guests from U.S tv shows such as Ariel Winter (Modern Family) Jamie King (Sin City) Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black), and many many others!
