Happy Emirati Women’s Day from The HUNTR

August 28th, 2022 marks Emirati Women’s Day and to celebrate the UAE’s community of talented, inspiring, and strong Emirati women, The HUNTR asked the talented Emirati artist Mariam Alobeidli to create a special illustration…

The result is this stunning collage of inspirational Emirati women below. Illustrator artist Mariam, an IT Major, is an Emirati student who works a part time job as a tourist guide in Abu Dhabi, and Dubai (with Sharjah also in the works). She creates and sells unique products – including cute stickers, canvas artworks and toes – using her artistic skills here.
