Marlene ‘Miilo’ C. D’Silva
Best known as "Miilo" (pronounced my-low).
Based in Dubai, U.A.E.
I've been painting & drawing since I was a kid (as young as 3 years old). Painting, creating & teaching is my passion.
I may be an artist but that doesn't stop me from trying new experiences & taking on adventures.
Recently, I've become invested in my fitness & health. I believe it has helped my mental state more than my physical which as a result has improved my creativity & made me highly motivated.
My goals as a creator is to encourage others to step outside of their comfort zones and challenge themselves!
