Hi Everyone!
Today’s Featured Artist is Amira Rahim:
I’ve been drawing since I could hold a pencil, and painting shortly after that. I didn’t go to art school, so I guess you could say I am self taught. I really decided to become a professional artist about 2 years ago when I relocated to Abu Dhabi, UAE. Finding myself in a new country completely out of my comfort zone forced me to reconnect with the truest parts of myself. Art has been an awakening and a therapy for me.

I like to paint in acrylics now but I used to use oil paints for years. When I started experimenting with abstract art, I found that acrylic mediums allowed me to work with the immediacy that I needed to loosen up.
