Calligraphy

Saabirah Correnti

http://users.sgi.net/~saabirah
Ms. Correnti is one of the few, if not the only, female Muslim calligraphers in the U.S. today. "I am a Muslim-American woman and a survivor of abuse from a very early age. I've lived my life complicated by illness (epilepsy and lupus) as well as an abusive family and then abusive marriage of 24 years. I am now trying very hard to find a way out. Calligraphy is something very special to me and perhaps if you view it you may find it pleasing to you."
