“Naile Hajjar was and still one of my outstanding students. Because she is a mathematician, her questions were different than other students. Her quest was to understand the most intricate details of Islamic Geometric Patterns. Not only that, Naile took it on herself to transfer her knowledge and experience to others through this wonderful platform she created. This website also indicates very clearly that Naile is a distinguished artist as well. She is more than capable of running successful teaching courses. I wish her the best of luck in her mission.”

Also, she is well experienced in teaching “Tazhep”, “Mandala” art, and Islamic Geometric Patterns for a long time. Having good experience in three different art forms, give Hacer a wide perspective on these three art forms and produce artwork of her own style. The samples of Hacer work on this website are clear evidence of her artistic capability and long experience. I wish you the best of luck and success in your mission.”
