Sayma is a versatile artist with expertise in fine art, photography, fashion art, and graphic art. She holds a degree in Art and Design from Birmingham City University and has subsequently shared her knowledge by teaching art and design in schools.
Primarily focusing on painting various 'scapes,' including skyscapes, landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes, and birds-eye views, Sayma combines a love for texture with an appreciation for simplicity in her work. Personal and reflective of her emotions, her artwork often takes on titles that mirror her feelings.
Sayma finds joy in utilizing textured wood surfaces and unconventional objects to create unique markings. An example is her use of an old debit card to craft a distant cityscape, yielding remarkable results.
While she initially concentrated on illustration and detailed work, Sayma has transitioned to more contemporary and abstract pieces. She finds this shift to be more enjoyable and effective in capturing attention.
In addition to her artistic pursuits, Sayma shares a valuable tip: never fear making 'mistakes' in your work, as paintings, like people, evolve over time, with their persona changing as time passes.
Mural and Large public work: I tend to seek to clients who want me to work directly on their walls within public buildings, creating enthralling images of the sky in its different personas and moods.
I do offer illustration services, as well as tuition.
