Meet Nina, the lady behinD @mimimoffie

 

I am very lucky to have Nina Alberg-Griffin drew an illustration of me. It's the cutest version with my glasses and favourite striped top. Couldn't have asked for more. Thanks Nina of @mimimoffie, you guys should check her Instagram out!

Here's a fun interview of how it all started :)

Enjoy!

Who is @mimimoffie?

mimimoffie is pretty young. I’ve always loved drawing. Since moving to the Caribbean, I started posting my drawings on Instagram. I got a few commissions as a result and now I'm working on prints and tote bags.  The name comes from my childhood when my father used to call me mimimoffie. Something to do with me always carrying around bags filled with books, pens and paper. The latter hasn’t changed.

What was your dream job when you were a kid?

I wanted to be a fashion designer/ singer/dancer/writer and a schoolteacher. I obviously had a very optimistic idea of how much time adults would actually have in a day.

Current color obsession and why.

Yellow! Yellow is cute and happy.

Describe yourself in 3 words.

(Recovering) procrastinator, nomadic, imaginative.

Can you live without pen and paper?

I'd say no based my burgeoning stationary collection :)
