My name is Maha.I am an illustration and animation student at Kingston University. I enjoy storytelling through a wide range of mediums including painting, animation, tapestry, film and installation. I grew up in Wales and have a passion for the countryside. Being from a bicultural background, I also love exploring topics of identity and escapism.I have had a passion for theatre and the feeling of escapism it creates. The way it can transport you to any place real or fantasy is magic and ultimately that feeling is what I am interested in exploring further.
Kingston Upon Thames/Wales
Projects I’m working on:
I am currently working on a project where I am responding visually to poetry.I am hoping this will be realised as an installation piece, and this is an idea that I want to develop further alongside national theatre wales. Something that inspired me within the project is understanding how atmosphere and emotions are set using lighting and colour and how the application of these elements can impact on the viewer/reciver.
