I have recently moved to the Sacred Valley in Peru, South America. Sitting in the airport on my way down South, I came to understand how more and more I am living my dreams and aspirations. As I sat, I created a mini sketch of what reflects how I am feeling having moved - full of dreams and hopes and excitement and ready for come what may --> excited to see where this year takes me artistically and mentally!

Hello! My name is Tahira Karim. I am an artist and educator. I love stories, travel, history, and cake. I am passionate about women's and minority equality and rights. I am obsessed with understanding the dark and the light in regard to humanity. I think the senses and their pathways to the brain and emotional memory and empathy are keys to this understanding. This blog is a place for me to investigate, journal, explore, and document.
