Maya Sariahmed was raised with one foot in Marlboro, New Jersey and the other in Algiers, Algeria. She is working on bringing herself into focus, building her confidence and writing in the third person. She suspects having a space to draw will help with that.
Her drawings (so far) often express moving through space in a woman’s body. At other times, they deal with the homesickness particular to that of an immigrant’s child.
Maya holds a degree in Communication Design from Parsons The New School for Design and works by day as the Associate Art Director for TED Conference’s in-house design team.
