Through her long-term projects, Halima aims to questions her surrounding environment by depicting her life experiences. Using a combination of color, texture, patterns, and symbolism—she uses a conceptual approach to the visual narratives she weaves, often through the form of self-portraiture combined with expressionism and diarist styles. With more than 8 years of experience, Halima's work was first exhibited in Lagos Photo Festival in 2012. In 2013, her work was recognized by the National Art Competition themed “IDENTITY”.
