Ayesha Gamiet

Ayesha Gamiet creates her paintings using shell gold, gouache, and handmade pigment watercolours, employing traditional methods and techniques from Ottoman manuscript illumination, and Persian and Indian miniature painting. Rooted in the rich language of Islamic art and the natural world, Ayesha’s work reinterprets traditional forms and motifs for a contemporary context. Ayesha’s travels, studies, and teaching in the Middle East and Asia continue to inform and inspire her work.
