As a child Ghaneema took to painting and sketching as a form of self-expression only for the demands of growing up to have her turn her back on Art. She would inevitably find her way back years down the line. Through Graphic Design, Ghaneema would finally find her voice – an effortless fusion of hand sketches, digital illustrations, text and color, every piece carries within it a personal journey of self-reflection. A paper and pencil artist at heart, Ghaneema’s pieces start off as sketches which are then scanned, cleaned, colored and digitally layered creating the final story.
She finds inspiration in everything – always moving, never stagnant – but in the words of her favorite poets Ghaneema finds the interpretation of her personal worlds. As humans, we crave connection, relatability, and while the pieces may fit together like the pieces of a puzzle of the story of her life, she hopes that rather than try to decipher her story, that people might be inspired to find their own.
