I trained in graphic design and my body of work encompasses illustration, comics, tutorials, digital games and children's books. I was apprenticed to a master calligrapher for several years and I am now settled in London, UK, where I am dedicated full-time to my own calligraphy, going deeper into the potential of the ancient art of the Kufic script, which I also teach, while pursuing illustration for my own pleasure. I'm also an avid cook and baker, and all-time animal lover, with a passion for ethnography and a history of globetrotting.
You'll find my work on my dual website, Majnouna (calligraphy) / Cedarseed (everything else). My CV is here.
