Tamara Akcay works as an art critic for online and printed publications, using her experience as a creator to approach arts with imagination and sensitivity.
She moved to London from Paris where she studied marketing at Paris IX, followed by two fashion certificates at Esmod and Studio Berçot and proceeded to work in ready-to-wear, both in London and Los Angeles.
Following those experiences she used her creativity to launch an eponymous jewellery line, after earning a certificate at the HBJO also known as “Ecole de la rue du Louvre” in Paris. Tamara enjoyed immersing herself into arts and culture, where she would find inspiration for her collections. Grateful to have had the chance to explore both fashion and jewelry making, opportunities led her to explore words and literature, as she delved into creative arts writing.
