Zakee has been an artist for as long as she can remember. And a textile designer since 1993. Her creative practice Zakee Shariff Studio was founded in 1998. For her coexisting as an artist and designer is a necessity.

Zakee created and sold worldwide her printed ladies clothing collection “Zakee Shariff”, from 1998 - 2005 and then again from 2014 - 2019. In 2020 Zakee decided to stop producing her clothing collection. And move her focus towards working in collaboration with textile clients that are more aligned with her values, while continuing to build on her fine art.

Her art is always her starting point and where her heart is naturally drawn to. She then intuitively abstracts from her artwork to create unique, strong yet sensitive, timeless textiles. Her work is inspired by her spirituality, growing up in London, her Asian/Indian/African background, healing, beauty, travel, adventure, music & street culture. Her aim is to touch peoples hearts and by doing so create an emotional response, a sense of healing, connection and self empowerment.

She is also a trained CTI life coach and intuitive channel. And supports personal transformation through her coaching, practice Dream Forward.

Like a beautiful dream, all that’s required to enter her world is a willingness to open up, let go, and enjoy the ride…
