Elhaam’s art was developed through her love of doodling during her childhood and teenage years. These ‘doodles’ evolved into a personal exploration of environmental preservation, internal conflict and positivity. Her work depicts intricately drawn layers of symbolically active objects together to create something new and mystical. Born in Newham and of Mauritian heritage, Elhaam is a young artist with no formal art education or training. She is currently on an apprenticeship scheme at Sir Robin Wales’ Newham Mayor’s Office.
