About the Artist:
Art has always been a passion for Saadiyah. From a young age, she was drawn to the art of typography. Saadiyah began taking English Calligraphy lessons during her primary school years. Throughout her schooling she continued learning different skills in the arts and crafts, such as stained glass painting, decoupage, jewellery design and ceramics. After completing her studies in Psychology and Teaching, she moved to Cape Town where she had the opportunity to once again pursue her love for art. She attended the Islamic Art classes by Achmat and Shaheen Soni. She also studied Fine arts at a private art school in Cape Town.
Whilst living in Dubai, she was exposed to the international art scene, which was unlike anything she had seen before. She studied Arabic calligraphy under internationally renowned Arabic Calligrapher and artist Fatima Rehman. She also attended different art workshops held by artists from all over the Middle East.
