This is the place where I share EVERYTHING I know about Islamic geometric patterns: tools and supplies you need, books to read, drawing tips, painting tricks, how to look cool while avoiding a mental breakdown (oops, maybe I shouldn't have said that)...

We like it salty and sweet

Do you know what lights me up about my new “job” in Islamic geometry?

I’m not sure whether you know that this year I went all in and left my job to dedicate my time to my passion. Now I can officially say that my passion is my new “job”.

It’s funny to read all my old blog posts and see the difference this has made in my life. I remember I hated writing blog posts. I just had no time to do that, but I really wanted to share my knowledge somewhere and make your life as artists easier. Now I can dedicate a whole week every month to this. Oh my goodness, I’ve just realized this.

As an Islamic geometry artist and educator, three things really get me hyped up and excited. I love writing this kind of content because I feel like I’m sharing something about myself with you.

So, let me break it down for you.

#1 Creating 

First of all, creating artwork with my bare hands is my jam! There’s something so satisfying about starting with a blank paper and then bringing it to life with intricate geometric patterns and designs.

You can check my Instagram page to see what I mean.

The precision and symmetry of Islamic geometry are just mind-blowing, and I love being able to incorporate them into my art pieces. Do you feel me?

#2 Teaching

And it’s not just about creating Islamic art for myself. The second out of 3 things that light me up is teaching others about Islamic geometry. Teaching is something that I am extremely passionate about. 

There’s so much history and symbolism behind these geometric patterns, and there’s just something so rewarding about sharing knowledge with others and helping them develop their own skills and understanding.

With Islamic geometry, I love being able to take people on a journey through the history and symbolism behind these patterns. From the basics of geometric constructions to the intricate details of specific designs, I find joy in seeing people’s faces light up when they finally understand how a certain pattern is constructed or what it represents.

Btw, you can find all my courses here.

#3 Inspiring

In addition to teaching others about Islamic geometry, it’s also incredibly fulfilling to see the impact that my work has on people’s lives. For many individuals, my art serves as a powerful reminder of their faith and spirituality.

By incorporating Islamic geometric patterns into my art, I can connect with others on a deeper level and create pieces that are both beautiful and meaningful. Seeing the joy and inspiration that my artwork brings to others is a constant source of motivation for me to keep creating and sharing my work with the world. I feel humbled and grateful to be able to make a difference in people’s lives through my passion for Islamic geometry.

Overall, as an Islamic geometry artist and educator, the ability to teach others about the beauty and significance of these patterns, and the opportunity to make a positive impact on people’s lives through my artwork is truly priceless. I feel blessed to be able to pursue my passion in a way that not only brings me joy but also enriches the lives of those around me.

That’s enough about me, what are three things that light you up about what you do?
