My name is Aminath Hishma Zakariyya. I was born and raised in Male’ and I’m a self-taught artist. I always see my sisters and cousins drawing and their talent always amazed me so I started drawing from a very young age and I think that’s how I got interested in art. When I was a kid, I use to spend my time making cards for my family members and sewing dresses for my dolls and making tiny furniture’s for them. I believe that’s how I got interested and fonder with handicraft works rather than fine arts.
