Shaima is a fantasy artist & illustrator based in Scarborough, Canada. 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 in a wide range of mediums such as colour-pencils, microns & watercolours. Using dark shapes or colours in contrast with detailed hair, garments, or environments, she likes to evoke a mixture of the surreal as well as create a 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. Studying Japanese throughout school and university, she has now turned her interest to Scandinavian languages.
