Colours are an essential part of our existence and it’s evident in nature. Inspired by nature, I love to paint landscapes, sunsets, galaxies and much more.Apart from painting, I also do Arabic Calligraphy, English Calligraphy, and Abstract Calligraphy. I believe myself to be a beginner in the vast field of Calligraphy. I developed my interest in it in the year 2019 when I saw a calligraphic post of Saima Shafi (Kralkoor)on Instagram platform, I tried to imitate it and that is how my journey started.
In 2020, when COVID-19 pandemic broke out in the World, Sumyla left painting and Sketching and came to the Calligraphy field and this was her First time to make Calligraphy and spend more time and got much interest in doing so.
