Zakee has been an artist for as long as she can remember.
Her creative practice and clothing brand, Zakee Shariff was founded in 1998. For her coexisting as an artist and designer is a necessity. At the end of 2019 Zakee decided to close her clothing brand, as it was proving to make it sustainbly, and this wasnt in flow with Zakee’s values. So she decied to focus on collaborative projects, her fine art and coaching.
Her work is inspired by her spirituality, growing up in London, her Asian -Indian – African background, healing, beauty, music and street culture. She is interested in creating an emotional response and translating experience. Her wish is to empower, heal, and touch peoples hearts through her work.
Her art is the starting point and always where her heart is drawn to. She then intuitively abstracts from her artwork to create textile designs.
She intends to create timeless textiles, for product that is not dictatorial. Here work is rooted in healing and empowerment through beauty.
Zakee works by commission with both her art and textiles.
Zakee is a born collaborator and has worked with many creative organizations over the last 25 years of her career.
Zakee is also a CTI trained Life coach, intuitive channel, and a Reiki healer.
Like a beautiful dream, all that’s required to enter her world is a willingness to open up, let go, and enjoy the ride…
