Safiya Mehraj, is a self taught artist and calligraphist. She was born in Srinagar. Her inspiration to create art comes from Kashmir.
She has finished her masters from University of Kashmir, where she emerged as a gold medallist in the Clinical Biochemistry.
For Safiya Mehraj, the art of drawing is a healing process and it also helps us in many ways during the lockdown imposed due to the pandemic.
She believes that we are never lost. Life has ups and downs but healing takes lot of time. The artist believes that drawing is a constant process & scribbling thoughts and their turn out in the end is just another feeling.
She is grateful to her parents who gave her support .”They have always been supportive and continue to appreciate my efforts,” she added.
Besides that, she does all the artistic stuff that makes her happy. “I try to paint my own imagination. I draw portraits(traditional/digital), calligraphy(Arabic/English/Urdu). I also make graphic designs, book covers, logos etc. Time management is a big hurdle today and we all are suffering from procrastination. I make sure that I do things on time and that makes me super happy,” she concluded.
