Tasneem believes that art can illuminate all the nitty-gritty corners of the expected, the ordinary and the sane. Creating art empowers her to change the unease of facing any crisis into the pleasure of unraveling it. She loves to create worlds full of magic and warmth, focusing on themes of resilience, empathy, and love. Her children’s stories and illustrations are greatly inspired by her toddler and the books they read and look at together. She is an OCAD graduate with a major in Drawing and Painting and a minor in English. To stay updated on her work, subscribe to her monthly newsletter and follow her on Instagram and Facebook.
Outside of her personal art practice, Tasneem works as the Executive Director of Art Ignite. and brings inclusive visual arts programs to the Flemingdon Park neighbourhood. Her workshops are designed to connect people from disparate backgrounds by using the arts as a tool for knowledge and understanding.
