I’m originally from Iraq, but I’ve worked as a motion graphic designer and art director and living in cities like Dubai, Cairo, Beirut and Istanbul.
My love of miniatures started when I was very young. I was an avid reader at the age of 5 and that enhanced my imagination a lot, even then I dreamed of creating the scenes I saw in my mind, but in a small scale. Six years ago, by chance, I stumbled across some kind of Balsa wood and immediately decided to build my first project – a small farm scene.
I tried Googling for how-to videos or tutorials to help, but I had no idea what the models were called. Once I finally worked out I needed to include the word “Miniatures” in my search box, I happily found there are quite a few miniature artists around the world. I began networking and making friendships with other artists, and gradually my work got attention.
The time needed for each project depends on the amount of detail required for each set. Some take a month or two, others a week or two.
