After working as a graphic designer at Abjad Design for three years, Nora shifted her focus to her visual arts practice as well as freelance illustration. She has done work for clients such as VICE, NoGood, Matter, Dubai Culture and Dubai Design District. She holds a B.S in Visual Communication from the American University of Sharjah.
