About Me

Hi guys! Salam Alaikum!

I’m Esma, and I’m the face behind Strudelworte (which by the way means „strudel-words“, being a fascinatingly weird and wrdly fascinating combination of two very cool things in this world). I’m 24 years old and I live in my beautiful hometown of Vienna, Austria (yes, Sound of Music, Mozart, Sachertorte). I’m currently finishing my studies at Uni, and started drawing and illustrating at the beginning of 2019.

My drawings typically depict quirky everyday-life situations, of Muslim women and girls and PoC characters especially. I want to show that we’re all pretty normal, but also sparkly and extraordinary in what we do.

I’m currently working on my first illustrations for a book (see projects for details) and looking forward to exciting projects this year!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love, Esma
