About the Doodler:
Aneesah Satriya is a Master of Architecture student in the UK, but originally from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She has an avid interest in crafts, the visual arts and da’wah through social networks. While attending various talks and conferences during her year back home (including a Productive Muslim seminar!), she started to “doodle” notes in her sketchbook, with the intention of sharing them with friends who could not make it. Surprisingly, the scanned visual notes became very popular on Facebook and were shared among attendees and non-attendees alike. Aneesah now produces doodles based on Productive Muslim articles, and also volunteers to design for Islamographic.com.
