Artist statement:

"I express the beauty of Islam in my art by using non-traditional, vibrant colors and Arabic calligraphy style with the unique mediums of alcohol inks, 100% isopropyl alcohol and sea salt on Yupo (Synthetic paper). Nature, words, and letters from the Qur’an along with God’s 99 descriptive attributes are key subjects in my work."

"With a Graphic Design background, I see each Arabic letter possessing many design principles. The design and beauty of each letter are honored through my unconventional style of disconnected Arabic letters."

"Featuring gold or white letters, contrasting with abstract, vibrant alcohol inks with negative space, my objective is to inspire individuals to move away from the customary, gold and silver glittered Islamic calligraphy and turn towards a movement where original, modern Islamic art is produced with pride."

"My artwork is not designed to promote Islamic Ideology, rather it is to express the beauty of Islam and for the public both Muslim and non-Muslim, to fathom the peaceful and bright side of Islamic culture for it’s unique art."
