Cereinyn once said ‘home is where I lay my hat’ so carried a panoply of Phrygians (a statement of liberty and freedom but better known as smurf hats), a couple of fedoras and a chullo for when chilly. To life’s double faults she tipped berets, panamas, slouches and shakos for moods varyingly exotic, militant, coquettish and exalted. The world is a better place when you wear a jolly good hat with it’s accompaniment all the more likely to take you through the wildly enchanted hinterlands meeting incarnations of gothic fairy-tale characters rather than job titles.
Eventually, all grand perambulations (roamings) lead home and so as a bear market loomed and gatsbies (newspaper boys) clarion cried “The sky is falling!!”, Cereinyn tipped a plutocrat top hat (Monopoly top hat) in the thick of the fray and with elegiac grace, called the wildest journeys a day, headed west in search of her arcane world and all that had once been home.
That is, she’s just returned to Canada after 6 years of life abroad.
She has created a campaign for Marc Jacobs, book covers for Random House and worked as an Art Director for M&C Saatchi amongst others. She has been a D&AD spotlight artist, was awarded one of the top 25 artist spots of the Observer newspaper for 2010 and is one of the selected artists for the Courvoisier Future 500 and has been spotted as an Artist to watch by, as a selection, Computers Arts and Art & Design Asia. She has worked a variety of exciting commissions in Europe, creating bespoke artworks and then doing odd jobs such as storyboarding and videos for a selection of more eclectic clients.
She resides both in Toronto, Canada and in London, UK. She would love to work with you and promises to speak more reasonably in person
