As well as managing House of Calligraphy since 2011 I have been learning and practicing Arabic Calligraphy for more than 10 years. Initially started with the Naskh Script under my teacher Molana Muzaffar Hussain I took my passion for Arabic Calligraphy and Islamic Art further when I completed my Masters in Visual Islamic & Traditional Art at the Princes School of Traditional Arts as well as studying Thuluth & Diwaani Script under various masters from the Turkish School of Calligraphy.
Many of my projects include calligraphy for Mosques and schools around UK as well as private commissions.
Upon completion of my Masters in 2017 I was awarded the Bagri Prize presented by Prince Charles as well as having some of my work purchased by the Museum of Islamic Arts in Malaysia
Since Launching House of Calligraphy I have led various Calligraphy workshops all over UK as well as a few short term & long term courses in East London, my dream being to keep the historic art alive in its traditional form.
