Iโ€™m Samra, and Iโ€™m the face, hands, and brain behind @glasscalligraphy. I was born in Kuwait, raised in Pakistan and a few years ago moved to Chicago. I started glass painting many years ago (in 2001) to ease my frustration of being lonely all the time but I never thought of taking it seriously until I painted my own wedding portrait. So my best friend made a sketch of my wedding photo and I wanted to save it and make it memorable. Since then it has been a gradual process of growth and improvement, one painting at a time. I had plenty of unsuccessful paintings but I kept learning and making.โฃ I'm still learning as I do a lot of experiments with my paintings, sometimes they don't work but I always get to learn something.โฃ

I love sharing my art through workshops, I teach kids and adult glass painting workshops. Besides art, teaching is also my passion, I have been a teacher for many years and belong to a family of passionate teachers. โฃโฃ

So teaching my art is a form of giving back to the community. โฃโฃ

My biggest goal this year is to stop playing with my own potential. โฃ
