About Hayat Gul

Kashmiri, born in Karachi, Pakistan. Moved to Montreal at 4.Philosophy: OUT OF DESTRUCTION COMES RENEWAL. Inspirations come from nature, Islamic art and the metaphysical. My current focus is glass canvas which I create by cutting hundreds, thousands of pieces of tiny recycled mirror, purposely deconstructed to reconstruct something of beauty. It is a very meditative process. Although my passion and focus is on art, I'm also a henna artist and teacher. Reiki and crystals certified
