About the Artist
I was born in district six, and grew up in Walmer estate. After my marriage i moved to Athlone, where I still reside.
I learnt embroidery from my late mother. After an accident which affected the use of my hands , my craft became occupational therapy for me , thus enabling the full use of my hands.
Encouraged and discovering an artistic leaning in myself ,I tried my hands at calligraphy so that I could spread Allah's kalam in the houses of people. I am thankfull Allah SWT granted me this ability to create art in various forms Algamdullilah.
