During the two years of' 'covid ' I have not done any live painting, instead mainly painting from home. A lot of commissioned art has come my way to keep me busy. Here's a section of an email sent to me by a client from USA whose wedding album was shared with me
" Hi Najma,
This is beautiful! I love the fun and lively atmosphere you’re capturing. I can’t wait to see the finished product. Thank you so much for sharing! Feel free to paint to your hearts content.

Thank you for all your beautiful paintings and for bringing our wedding to life despite the distance.
From the moment we first talked and you told me both your personal and professional story, I felt an instant connection to your spirit and energy.
I know this last year has been so tough for you and your family but I know that you will immortalize your beautiful daughter in each brush stroke .

On the 27th of July 2022 I painted a wedding ceremony in the backyard of the groom's house in Fall River, Nova Scotia. It was a gift from his mother Sheri Morgan. This is what Sheri wrote to me afterwards,
“They could not believe it. It’s so beautiful …We’re going out today to get it framed. Chloe and Ben were just blown away( and Chloe loved that you made her a bit skinnier hahah)”
