Noor Shamma / Profile
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.

She works closely with adults and children to promote the importance of creative literacy in our everyday lives.
As the founder of 3 Tiers Consultancy, Noor conducts customized team bonding art-jamming workshops that serve in nourishing creativity, self-development and team dynamics through igniting the artistic process and allowing creative expression. She also finds time to teach children art in her spare time.
