“Becoming part of this project, I felt a little emotional. I felt connected. When you write a letter, you are giving away part of you… it has personal touch to it.”
In our Meet A Creator series, we highlight some of the amazing people who volunteer their time and artistic skills to make Wonderful Post for someone facing isolation or adversity.
Throughout the short films, we’ll talk all things creativity, from how the creator got to where they are today, to their process and inspirations, as well as all things snail mail.
In this episode, we meet artist Humaira Abid. From Lahore, Pakistan, Humaira’s work picks up ordinary images from everyday life and makes them extraordinary. Her basic interest is situations in ‘relationships’ and their after effects. Some of her work is humorous, some ironical. Her themes are timeless. The presentation is contemporary. She turns, carves, constructs in wood and combines it with different mediums with great skill and detailing. Check out Humaira’s work on Instagram - instagram.com/humaira_atelierh/
For her Wonderful Post, Humaira created a postcard featuring her work, and wrote a personal, uplifting note on the back.
