- salon creates nail art inspired by Artist Michelle Angela Jenkins-

Raffine Beauty Salon has collaborated with Dubai-based Canadian artist Michelle Angle Jenkins to mark the upcoming Art Dubai 2014. Recently launched in Sofitel The Palm Resort and Spa, Raffin Beauty Salon will interpret Michelle Angela Jenkins work titled JOY, into nail art. Working closely with Michelle, Raffines nail artists have created artwork to celebrate the art season allowing art lovers an opportunity to wear art throughout March and April and view some of Michelle Angela Jenkins artwork at the salon.

A graduate from the University of Toronto's Teachers College (OISE), Canadian Artist Michelle Angela Jenkins lives and works in Dubai. She has exhibited her works in over seven countries, including Dubai where she has showcased at several locations over the years. Art has been a focus and passion for Michelle throughout her studies and as an undergraduate at the University of Windsor, she had the opportunity to use different mediums such as metals and clay however painting with acrylic has proven to be her preferred medium. The collaboration with Raffine Beauty Salon is the first for Michelle the translation of her artwork into nail art is an opportunity for everyone to enjoy her art.

This is an exciting project for me; I have never had an opportunity to work with nail artists. Unraveling the emotional of my creation onto this form of art piece is incredible. Working with the Raffine artist allowed me to understand the challenge of small space like the nail. The experience of inviting someone into the interpretation of my work was very personal. From your hand to my heart may we continue to connect our dreams and cultures through art said Michelle Angela Jenkins.

The Dubai art scene is thriving and as the Art Dubai is celebrated we wanted to bring this new age idea of interpreting art of artist into nail art. Our nail artist has been working closely with Michelle to ensure that every emotion and true passion is reflected on the final product. This is a great opportunity for art lovers to wear art and we are looking forward to welcoming them to Raffine said Cheryl Vaughn, Director of Raffin

Throughout March and April, visit Raffine Beauty Salon, Sofitel Palm Jumeirah, to view Michelle Angela Jenkins exhibition and have your own personal nail art done to celebrate Art Dubai. For booking call 044556636. Enjoy Raffine Beauty Salon
