Alifya was born, raised and now living in Dublin. She specializes in creating fine art inspired by nature that invokes feeling and motivates the viewer. She loves creating beautiful intricate patterns incorporating lettering and colour.
Alifya discovered her passion for art in 2017 in her late 20’s after abandoning it for over a decade due to pursuing a career and other interests. She found that she missed art making. After some experimentation with mandala art and through creating the intricate patterns, she got addicted to the art making process. This then led to a keen interest not only in mandala art but also in calligraphy and lettering.
Now completing a Certificate in Visual Arts Practice with the NCAD in Dublin, Alifya hopes to extend her visual language and become more self-directed on working on project development.
