My name is Mahe Zehra but I mostly go by MZ. I am so happy you’re here.
Before I was born a psychic told my mother that her daughter would be attracted to colors and would grow up to pursue a career in art. My mother was a little skeptical since she thought I would be more attracted to numbers.
I was born in the summer of 1986 and as I grew older it was clear that both my mother and the psychic had been right. I was fond of colors and I loved numbers. And so I grew up and ended up pursuing a career in Mathematics, but while I was trying to get all the numbers straight in my head I found that without some time taken each day to be creative – draw, paint, make cards – I could not do my math quite as well.
That is when I decided that I would never classify myself as someone who was left or right brained. God had given us both sides for a reason – to balance each other and I intended to make full use of both – since that is what I enjoyed doing.
My passion is to meet you, get to know you and show you that art is for everybody. Creativity isn’t an elusive element, it exists in all of us. I don’t believe that people are born artists. I want to show you that the first step towards becoming an ‘artist’ is to allow yourself to pick up the brush or the pencil and make mistakes. Some of the best art is created from mistakes. So let yourself go. Let the inhibitions go. Let the inner critic go and let yourself be creative!
