The Waves Within

This digital piece was stitched together during a time of emotional turmoil, using an iPad, Apple Pencil, and Procreate. Acknowledging the need for a mindful grounding practice, I started with the crescent moon – a symbol that constantly reminds me of my birth home, Pakistan, and also alludes to the many guiding celestial forces in our galaxy today. During this piece’s creation, I allowed myself to become the waves; Calmed by the power of the moon and content in their constantly changing nature. Just as the tides are lovingly held in the earth’s basin, watched over by the gravity of the moon, so are we replenished by this shining light in the night sky. This is one moment in my life where I truly appreciated the healing powers of art.
