Zakeya’s inspiration comes from the beauty and strength of women all over the world, she expresses her sentiments with vivid colors that are derived from tradition, yet she uses modern form in a mélange of styles. Her pieces almost always have a woman at the center, sometimes in a classic portrait style and other times in a more modern abstract or expressionism style inspired by nature. She loves to work with her fingers to add embellishments and texture to her paintings.
Zakeya is a very optimistic person who loves to work in environments which are dynamic and full of life, and these feelings are very much portrayed within her paintings through the use of bright colors.
