I’m Alifya an average 20 something year old girl from Ireland. By profession, I’m an accountant. I started drawing as form of self expression. I’ve been doodling ever since childhood but never have I dedicated so much of my time into it as I do now and I am loving it! I wanted to ensure that my work had a personal style to it so after much experimenting I found that mandala work is what I enjoy the most and I am good at. Mandalas are very therapeutic to draw so after a long day in work this is just what I need!
My background is Indian so I’ve grown up drawing henna (mehndi) on mine and relatives hands for special occasions. The detailing in my work is very similar to the traditional patterns of henna so this is where the idea for my style came.
Thank you ever so much for taking the time to visit my page. Feel free to leave a comment in the box below. I’d love to hear your thoughts!
