My name is Ameera Siddiqui, born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. Ever since I was a little girl I’ve always had a very keen interest about art and creative things. Art is so meaningful to my life because it allows me to express my inner thoughts through inspirational stories, without the use of any words, that make me feel, think, and see the world from a different perspective. The main reason of why I find so much joy in drawing is because I always seem to find a peace of mind, happiness and relaxation when I’m in the zone.
There’s a well known saying that goes, “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.” As a self-made artist, I’ve always had a keen interest in how mesmerizing the artistic world is. It’s ignited with endless creativity and imagination, where the impossible always seems possible. Art is truly an inspiration to myself and many others. I find it remarkable to witness the different ways our lives are positively impacted by it. As a lover of art, there are so many different reasons as to why I believe it is so important. Art is a great way for people to express how they’re feeling. It’s a way to tell an inspirational story that made you feel, think or see the world in a different point of view, without the use of any words. It’s a way that shows people how imaginative and creative you can truly be. But most importantly, it is important because it’s what brings meaning and purpose to the world since art is everywhere. When I think of art, I think of love. I think of love because art is such a beautiful thing that could be anything you want it to be. It’s something where you don’t have to worry about making mistakes because there’s no right or wrong.
