Inspired by…

After many afternoons of doing this:

I’ve become the featured artist in the Inspired by Books series at the Museum of Islamic Art library! In 2-3 weeks, they’ll also be hosting a display of some of my ink drawings.

My understanding is that they started this series when they noticed that many of the library patrons are local artists, who come there to do research related to their artwork. So the library decided to run short features on some of us, both on their website and with a small display of our work.

I’m very happy to be part of this series. Not only because the museum and library have provided much inspiration, but because I really appreciate this gesture of community outreach.
