For the past couple of months, I have been captivated and charmed by these incredibly rich paintings from illustrator Roeqiya Fris. Roeqiya creates magical landscapes filled with radiant tones, botanicals and colourfull patterns. I got captured by the feminine beauty she puts into her work and the enchanting Arabic atmospheres. It’s hard to keep my eyes away from it, I love her work so much!! Roeqiya Fris is a Dutch-Egyptian adventurer, artist and teacher who lives in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Each illustration is an invitation to a voyage. She draws inspiration from her sisters, her family, nature, her roots and her travels. Roeqiya graduated from the Willem de Kooning Academy of Visual Arts in 2005. After graduation, she has worked as a fine art teacher, ran a creative workshop company called Fris Projecten for 6 years and started to focus on creating her own beautiful work 2 years ago.
Roeqiya sells her illustrations as prints in her Etsy shop and you can follow her work on Instagram.
