About me
Hi everyone, my names Shaina and I'm a freelance illustrator based in the UK. I specialize in fashion, beauty and lifestyle illustration, working predominantly in watercolor paints and black Indian ink to create water color art works with a modern twist. My work is inspired by beauty, nature, fashion and architecture and by intuitively following the endless ideas that flow through my imagination. ​Clients include: The Makeup Museum New York City - Emilie Heathe New York - Bubble Daisy London - Wacoal Europe - Fantasie Lingerie - Elomi Lingerie - Freya Lingerie - Milk X Magazine Hong Kong ​
Projects
  • Makeup Museum New York | Pink Jungle - Makeup in 1950's America Exhibition Poster
    Makeup Museum New York | Pink Jungle - Makeup in 1950's America Exhibition PosterA very exciting project where I had the absolute pleasure of collaborating with leading fashion and celebrity make-up artist Rachel Goodwin for the launch of The Makeup Museums opening exhibition 'Pink Jungle - 1950's Makeup in America'. Through a bold, painterly, traditional fashion illustration inspired style I was able to bring Rachel's vision to life. Taking inspiration from the strong red lip and obviously made-up yet elegant eyes of the many leading ladies of that era.
  • Emilie Heathe | Creator Series Collaboration
    Emilie Heathe | Creator Series CollaborationEmilie Heathe are a gorgeous nail polish and lifestyle brand based in New York that I've had the pleasure of collaborating with to create some unique watercolor artworks for, illustrating my take on the brand. By focusing on the brands rich, jewel toned nail polish shade, Big Night Out, I was able to create a series of illustrations encapsulating the brands organic, clean and glamorous qualities with a surrealist twist. All work showcased on the brands socials.
  • Fantasie Lingerie - Smoothease
    Fantasie Lingerie - SmootheaseA series of illustrations created for Fantasie Lingerie’s AW19 new brief style ‘Smoothease’.

These illustrations were featured on Fantasie Lingerie’s AW19 POS for Smoothease, including a counter top unit, strut showcard and prong end hanger.
