Basma is both a painter and textile artist. The brilliant combination of colour, light, texture, translucency and line are central aspects of her work.
As a Cornwall artist she draws inspiration from the surrounding landscape and unique natural light.
Basma’s work is always related to the process of painting rather than the image. The artwork emerges from the interaction of marks she makes on the surface with the colours and textures she uses.
Her relationship with the surface has a major influence on the way she makes the work. What Basma paints has a lot to do with layering and finding paths inside shapes; the colour and lines describe her journeys through life.
Basma’s paintings are commissioned works and become part of collections by private individuals, interior designers, architects and companies such as The Scarlet and Bedruthan Steps hotels in Cornwall and Combe Grove Manor in Bath.
