Hello and Welcome

I am a Muslim American artist, illustrator, and writer living in Los Angeles with my husband, kids, and a cat. I love drawing, painting, illustrating, and writing stories. I have been drawing and creating since I can remember.

In 2017 I finally launched my freelance design company, Sumayya Ansari Designs. It has been an amazing journey and I learned so much! ​As an Illustrator, I have had the opportunity to work with clients like Hitachi, National Geographic for kids, and Heated Magazine among others. When I am not working with a client I make stationery and prints, that you can find in my shop. I also sell wholesale. Please check the link for wholesale under Shop.

As a writer, I am interested in writing stories that explore the journey of motherhood and being a Muslim woman of color living in the USA.

Explore my site to learn more about me, get a closer look at the work I do, and see what I can do for you. If you have a comment, question, or just want to say hi please drop me an email at sumayyaansari[at]gmail. com.
