Welcome to my world!
My name is Pali and this is the place where I like to share with people from across the world my illustrations, inspirations, and unique view upon the world.
I grew up with math being my favorite subject – yet illustrating fashion designs gave me the opportunity to express my creativity and to connect to the beauty of the world in a special manner. Divided between two passions, math and design, I consequently opted for FIT, where I graduated with an AA degree in Fashion Design. After learning more about the insides of the fashion world, I was drawn by the business side of fashion companies, fueled by my math background. So, here I am, a double graduate in applied math and business management from Stony Brook University, undeniably involved in building a merchandise planning career in the retail industry.
Life is always about learning, evolving and sharing knowledge with the rest of the world. I don’t want to give advice, because I am still learning myself, but I would love to share with you what I’ve learned so far. I do that through my fashion illustrations, my work experience and life lessons. My artistic side has enabled me to open a new chapter in my life and to become more open and generous with the people around me.
After graduating from FIT I stopped illustrating altogether. I just tried to keep things separate along the way, due to a common misperception that numbers and art don’t get along too well (a myth I’ve recently debunked). After over a decade of not illustrating anything I’ve recently taken up fashion illustration as a hobby, and realized I can successfully balance both of my passions without compromising performances.
Being passionate about fashion I’m a fan of Donna Karan, Christian Dior, Diane von Furstenberg, Phoebe Philo, Miuccia Prada, Stella McCartney and Carolina Herrera – the list could go on and on 🙂 – and I love to illustrate my own fashion designs based on the many inspirations around me.
So…here we are. Beautiful people inside out yearning for beautiful illustrations and happy thoughts to start their days with. Welcome to my world! Feel free to drop a line, ask me anything or suggest collaborations – looking forward to hearing from you and delving into new projects and experiences.
Let’s explore the world together through art, senses, life experience and…numbers 😉
