Tiwatope Adetoye is the Creative Director of Sapphire by ‘tieri Ltd, a 21st century fashion solutions company. She is a fashion entrepreneur based in Lagos who started illustrating when she was young but really started when she saw an illustration by Ominigho-Aita Imona and had the chance to be mentored by her. She has been illustrating since. Tiwatope is inspired by everything from contemporary alternative music, a crawling ant inside the sugar cupboard to everyday happenings around her and of course fashion shows, social gatherings even a good book.
Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time- Thomas Merton
Tiwa says this quote resonates with her, she has lost and found herself in illustrating.
