Mariam El-Quessny is an artist and interior designer who currently lives and works in Oakland, California. Spanning interior design, installation, and illustration, her work takes everyday objects, living spaces, and common identities, and explores the stories and forms lying just beneath their surface.


Over the years, Mariam has worked across a range of artistic and design mediums. Her roots, however, are in painting and her latest project, Motherhood Illustrated, has inspired her to take her painting and illustration to the next level.


Mariam would like to announce that her portraiture practice is now officially launched and open for business!
