Her interest in Art begun as a child with an interest in all things creative. She knew that her life's work would be surrounded by or inclusive of the arts.
"I am the little girl who would count the bubble gum stuck on the pavement. The young woman that would sit in a coffee shop and listen to the world fly by. The mother who watches her son discover his fingers and toes. I love detail and for as long as I can remember I have been a collector of images, objects and things. I am a mother, an artist, and a designer. I am a traveler and one who makes and collects all things beautiful."
She has had some amazing opportunities to be able to live and travel throughout countries such as Morocco, Oman, UAE and Qatar which has without a doubt contributed to the enrichment and depth of her work.
Souk Collective is the company she setup to profile and sell her artworks, designs and photography.
Zahrah has worked in Commercial Advertising as a Senior Graphic Designer for 2 years, has participated in a number of exhibitions and worked on many private commissions.
