Sarah Wahid

Sarah Amalina Ab Wahid was born in Ipoh pursue A Levels at Kolej Tuanku Jaafar Negeri Sembilan, followed by obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Accounting & Finance at the London School of Economics (LSE), UK. Sarah stayed on for another few years in London working in an audit firm while obtaining her professional accounting certificate. Sarah now works in Kuala Lumpur as an accountant.

Despite having a fairly conventional non art related career path, Sarah has always been in love with art. While living in London she participated in an art competition called Artistic Jihad where she submitted her doodles of life as a Muslim abroad. Although it did not end with a victory, it opened her mind to an array of art she was never exposed to before.

Sarah only started sharing her art via social media upon returning home from London in 2017, as a way to illustrate her interpretations of her surroundings. Stemming from here she was given the opportunity to participate in SUARAM’s Art Exhibition in 2019.
