Graphic Designer & Illustrator
I'm a designer from the other side of the world. I'm obsessed with discovering new cultures and traditions. That's why I spent the last few years between Jeddah, Toronto, and now Dublin—three places that represent different cultures and languages. Essentially, they also represent three different worlds.
I come equipped with a Master of Science degree in Advertising from Dublin Institute of Technology, and an honours degree in Graphic Design from Dar Alhekma University. Working as a graphic designer for more than 9 years, I gained a wide range of experience in the field. Experimentation is vital for me—in the process of discovery, I find my voice. I speak through art, I communicate through design, and I send strong messages to the audience.
The experimentation process has allowed me to appreciate the relationship between art and language. Social issues are the common thread of my work. To date, I have portrayed a range of topics in my work, always with the intention of giving a voice to a group or community that may otherwise not have it. As an artist and a designer, I speak through my work, and reache out to a much larger community.
