Arabesque

Until I threw myself into an MA in Traditional Art, I hadn’t really come across that much art from the Islamic world.  During my studies I was introduced to a wide variety of Islamic art, from calligraphy, through geometry to the most intricate, gilded arabesque artworks in the most stunningly beautiful Qur’an’s. The Arabesque gallery below shows some of my work in the style of the arts from the Islamic world.

I'm happy to talk to you about any of the works, or if you're thinking of commissioning something, or even if you just want a little bit more information about my working process. If you'd like more photos of a particular work, I'm happy to email you.
