Haifa Jamalieh


Haifa Jamalieh is a mixed-media interdisciplinary artist who focuses on cultural expression interested in exploring the narratives of Arab American communities through the use of traditional and symbolic imagery. Haifa’s work fuses her passions for connection, process and play orbiting around the objects and people in her life via illustrations, daily documentation, photography and paint. Her paintings have been sold at auctions, commissioned privately and publicly.

After graduating from Oakland University, Haifa found her way into a professional design career starting with the localization and graphic transcreation industry, a niche field that seeks to help businesses apply visual communication to international markets.  She went on to get her MFA in Graphic Design from the Academy of Art University and launched Word Design Co. in 2014.  Currently, Haifa is a Software Engineering (MSc) student at Boston University with plans to explore new forms of art that incorporate technology.

Haifa is available for commissioned projects and is seeking those who are interested in the representation of female artists in particular for an upcoming endeavor.  E-mail her at haifaj@gmail.com if you’d like more information.
