A curious mind and an observant eye: that’s what classifies Samia’s work. Born into a family in which the arts as a tradition are highly valued, she is on the lookout for new stories and ideas,. Always carrying her sketchbook, collecting the things that are happening around her. In interaction with the world, she is constantly getting inspired from peculiarities in daily life and is able to turn everything into a story.
She lives to extract the most interesting part out of anything. Always eager to find new ways of executing her art, she expresses herself through her narrative and fresh artwork in a variety of media, ranging from carefully executed etchings to light handed sketches, from hilarious comics to colorful landscapes, from quirky portraits of her friends and unknown neighbors to elaborate digital illustrations.

Samia explores humor & storytelling through illustration, print making, graphic design, sculpture and music.
She is currently setting up her studio and an artist residency with her family in Preet Nagar, District Amritsar, India.
