Born in Varna to a Bulgarian mother and Algerian father, Meryem was raised between France and the UK, and is currently based in London.

Her work looks to document and explore spirituality, ritual practices and their connection to the natural world. She often balances symbolism and cycles within nature, against a contemporary backdrop. Dhirk (the Islamic concept of remembrance) is a central theme in her practice, that threads itself across a range of mediums including painting, moving image and bookmaking.

Having graduated in 2012 with a BA in Graphic design, she completed her MA at UAL in 2013. She has since been counterbalancing her studio practice with a creative career, as a Designer and Art Director, working with clients like Nike, Bvlgari, Levi's and Vsco.

Meryem has participated in talks at the Tate and Hayward gallery. Her work has been exhibited across the UK, US, UAE and Japan, Most recently, she completed a residency in Hokkaido, learning traditional artisanal techniques and symbolism within the Ainu community.
