my name is Loulou, I have one daughter "Imane" who is 10 years
old and we live in the seaside town of Brighton on the South Coast
am in a happy relationship with Mark who tells me constantly that
he is very proud of the art, graphic and craft work that I do.
am a full time mum and carer to my daughter as she has Gender
Identity Disorder and ASD, but still find plenty of time to create
works of art on my computer. I also run a business making
Waldorf Dolls and Eco toys for children using 100% natural materials.
am currently in negotiations with a film company owned by Bob
Geldof to make a documentary on raising a transgender child. My
daughter has lived as a little boy since she was 4 and it is important
to me to make the world understand that our children are born
this way, it is not a life style choice.
lived in Dubai, United Arab Emirates for 14 years up until July
2004, and while there I ran my own online graphic business called
"Gulfmystery Design" which was a very popular linkware and custom
have loved fairies ever since my only sister was dying in hospital
with Sarcoma a rare bone cancer. Debbie was 9 when she died and
I was just 10 years old. I witnessed so much suffering that the
only way I could cope and shut myself off from it was to dream
myself into a fantasy world of unicorns and fairies and all things
magical. It helped me get through the long year my sister was
ill until she finally passed away in her sleep.
a way my artwork is in her honor, I know she would have loved
every single piece I created and I hope she is looking down on
me and watching all I do.
am totally self taught in all the programs I use. My favorite
by far is Poser and over the years I have spent a few thousand
$$$ on content for it. I have worked on many art pieces for clients
especially clients in USA. While living in Dubai 100% of my clients
art piece I create is special in my heart. I always keep a small
print of it for myself, just to remember the idea I once had for
that recognise my work may remember me under my old name of Tahani
(I changed it back to my birth name).
