Reem Taki


Born 1960 in Damascus, Syria.



   After my children grew up, I pursued art and started studying Islamic art in 2010. In the same year, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Engaging and mastering Islamic art and miniatures helped me recover from chemo and radiotherapy. I used to paint all night turning my pain to pieces of fine art.

   I challenged cancer with my passion to paint. Even though I am still taking medications, I believe I am healed. I validated my own experience with art, as I merged different types of art with Islamic and miniature arts. The numerous comments I received suggested that my colors were strong, unique, and beautiful. To formalize my experience, I pursued a degree in Islamic art in miniatures and was taught by the famous Persian scholar and artist, Fatima Pourhatimi.

   I was awarded my degree in Islamic art and miniatures and became a member of the Jordanian artist association. I am currently learning Arabic calligraphy. Art has no limits and I will continue to learn and explore this soothing world.
