Featured Artist Amira Rahim

Hi Everyone!
Today’s Featured Artist is Amira Rahim:
I’ve been drawing since I could hold a pencil, and painting shortly after that. I didn’t go to art school, so I guess you could say I am self taught. I really decided to become a professional artist about 2 years ago when I relocated to Abu Dhabi, UAE. Finding myself in a new country completely out of my comfort zone forced me to reconnect with the truest parts of myself. Art has been an awakening and a therapy for me.

I like to paint in acrylics now but I used to use oil paints for years. When I started experimenting with abstract art, I found that acrylic mediums allowed me to work with the immediacy that I needed to loosen up.

What tips can you give that have made your artwork easier, such as tools, brushes, paint, etc? (this may help others)
I’ve found that squinting or taking a picture of the painting with my camera phone really helps me see the whole picture. Also, don’t be afraid to experiment with new media.
