Denise Fike, artist turned fashion illustrator extraordinaire, likes to station herself at social gatherings to sketch style setters and socialites. In a trip to her studio (SEE MORE IMAGES HERE), I learned about this caring wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Not wanting to disclosure too much information.. I mark down her Fast Five answers.
What’s going on now: Fike has spent a lot of time drawing larger than life fashion illustrations. Wanting to try something new, Fike has started designing jewelry! Thankfully I tried on her new rings and she snapped a picture (see below). Fike plans on developing her jewelry skills. Only DF knows what her next project entails; can’t wait to see!

When I went to Inliquid the other week, I was captivated by the art involving fashion. There were some nice pieces up for sale and I would have been honored to walk away with any of these!
The last three images are my favorite. They are actually all apart of the same long picture. I snapped three sections of the wall art to better fit the camera lens. Which is your favorite?
The other night when I was at the Gorgeous event at The Ritz Carlton I had to opportunity to meet up with artist Denise Fike. I’ve seen her work around the city and was excited to hear her sponsoring that event. Little did I know she was sketching people on the scene! Here is a look at my latest wall art.
Here is a Vine of my friend Priya getting her Denise Fike original!
