Curiosity, emotion and desire drive the work of Noor Shamma. Noor consciously remains ‘unclassifiable’ as an artist so that she can express herself through many different mediums. Noor’s current work explores the relationship between art, identity and emotion through a plethora of imagery, texture and expressive styles.
As the originator of the popular and ongoing Postcard Initiative sweeping through the nation (and beyond), Noor also finds time to teach children art in her spare time. Noor is Head of Communications and Public Affairs at the Paris-Sorbonne University in Abu Dhabi. She lives in the United Arab Emirates and holds a BSc in Design Management from the American University of Sharjah and has an Executive Masters in Marketing, Management, Communications and Media with first class honors: mention très bien, from the Paris-Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi.
