Lives In: Dubai, United Arab Emirates
About Me: I am an idealist without illusions, passionate about the power design has to shape our world for the better, love spreading my motherly wing to children less fortunate and making beautiful things with my hands.
I made my first doll for my daughter, after finding nothing that captured both my heart and her spirit. Soon after Dumyé came to life, offering mothers an opportunity to gift their girls a beautiful, personal and purposeful doll. At the same time Dumyé serves as a living lesson to my daughter. A way to inspire her, to show compassion for others, respect Mother Nature and to know above all else the greatest gift we have in this life is actually in the giving.
Hire Me For/I'm Good At: To make a cloth doll for someone you love.
Interested In: Collaborations
Mama Likes: Mommy daughter dates, dinner parties, going to the movies, laughing, champagne, holding my husbands hand, design, fresh flowers.
