I am a freelance writer, professional artist and have been teaching Art and Design for almost ten years. I have worked as the Managing Editor at Muslimaat Magazine. Moreover, my articles have been published on various platforms such as, Productive Muslim, Muslim Matters, Virtual Mosque (previously called Suhaib Webb), The Intellect Magazine, Aailaa Magazine and Hiba Magazine.
As a creative person, I believe in honouring the mundane aspects of life. Being a mother of three, I relish altering the commonly perceived “trivial” aspects of life into meaningful works of art or writing. Creativity, whether in the form of art or writing, for me is a process of turning the ordinary into extraordinary.
An optimistic approach thus, can lead to a more fulfilling and rewarding life. There are so many things to be thankful for and I feel obliged to return to my ordinary life for inspiration for my writing and paintings, such as the chores that I regularly perform, as a wife, a mother, a daughter, a teacher and a friend. I try to capture the moments of my demanding life through my paintings to commemorate and be grateful for these gifts. Because really this is what life is, a true work of art.
