Welcome to SaabaStudio!

I'm Saaba, a portrait painter working in chalk, ink, textiles, wax, and collage. 

I handmake original artworks whose thousands and thousands of knotted and stitched threads generate inviting tactile topographies that both capture their subjects' expressions and mirror their complex life-stories. 

Through these works, viewers can experience curiosity, confer narrative, draw connections, and form new sentences. After all, aren't these generative actions the basis for human connection?  

If you are a collector, appreciator, or an individual looking to commission a high-end art piece, you're in the right place! Please peruse the website, ask questions, and join my mailing list!
