The Dome of the Rock is a building of extraordinary beauty, solidity, elegance, and singularity of shape … Both outside and inside, the decoration is so magnificent and the workmanship so surpassing as to defy description. The greater part is covered with gold so that the eyes of one who gazes on its beauties are dazzled by its brilliance, now glowing like a mass of light, now flashing like lightning - Ibn Battuta (14th century travel writer)
About the Artist
As far back as I can remember I have always wanted to be an artist.
At 16 oil on canvas became a passion and by the grace of Allah i was commissioned to paint many islamic architectural scenes. In more recent times I have dabbled in mosaics and other mediums.
I started Photography as a safe hobby after my sons were born, and soon realized it was one of my most favourite past times.
I was mesmerized by the artistry involved in cake decorating and decided to try my hand at it, I finally found my niche as a cake decorator.
Alhamdulillah,with my training as an artist and a photographer I have created a successful businesscalled cakes and canvas.
