Sudan is an Afro-Arab country, Prior to its separation from South Sudan in July 2011, was the largest African country.
The vast size of the country allows for the existence of 600 ethnic groups who speak more than 400 languages and dialects. The official and most common language is Arabic.

I started my career as an architect, after graduating from the University of Khartoum, Faculty of Architecture in 2007. Working as an architect for 5 years gave me the kick-start into creative thinking, and I gradually focused on 3D rendering, which in turn led me to an interest in graphic design.
I obtained a Master's degree in graphic design in Florence, Italy in 2013, and started to focus more on digital drawings.
Developing my art skills is an ongoing process, and over time I stepped back from digital drawings into mixed media and ceramics.
how I started with ceramics.
In 2018, a year after I moved to Toronto, I got the Toronto Mentorship Art Grant, offered by Toronto Art Council, alongside Canadian Artist Erin Candela. This opportunity, has had a significant impact in my life, I fell in love with clay and I am working on becoming a better clay student and dedicating more time to my ceramics.
