About me

Hello! I’m Safira, a visual artist, calligrapher and educator based near Leicester in the Midlands, UK.

I practise traditional forms of art including Islamic Geometry and Islamic Illumination/ Tezhip.


I also work as a freelance calligrapher, specialising in modern calligraphy and brush calligraphy. You can find me providing calligraphy or engraving services for brands in store, such as Dior, Givenchy, Guerlain and Selfridges.
