Turquoise Mountain Artisan Soghra Hussaini 2

Soghra was made an orphan at the age of 15, left to care for siblings by herself. Hoping to generate income to support her family, Soghra began studying Calligraphy and Miniature Painting at the Turquoise Mountain Institute. Soghra is regarded as one of Afghanistan's most promising young artists and has received a number of international commissions. She has also showcased her work at several exhibitions in Kabul and the UK. In 2014, Soghra teamed up with the jeweller Alice Cicolini to create a unique collection of hand-painted jewellery.
