Shaima is a Canadian fantasy artist & illustrator based in Toronto, ON. Receiving her BFA Honors Degree in Visual Arts Studio from York University (2013), she works as a freelance artist for various clients around the world; with interests in illustrating & concepting for Publishing Houses as well as the Film & Video-Game industry.
As a traditional artist, she works with a wide range of mediums such as colour-pencils, microns & watercolours. Often using simple forms in contrast with detailed elements such as hair, garments, or environments, she likes to evoke a dark and gothic atmosphere in her art.
In her spare time she likes to create & design jewellery (found on her Etsy Shop), as well as learn about the history of other cultures; their mythologies, stories, and languages. She is particularly interested in European history, including Viking history from Scandinavia and fast forwarding to the Regency, Victorian, & Edwardian era of Britain.
Studying Japanese throughout school and university as well, she works to improve her skills through various content and self-study.
Shaima is available for freelance work. Please contact at firstname.lastname@example.org with details on your project.
