Nammari initially qualified as a nurse on first arriving in Scotland, worked in various disciplines in hospitals, but she found she was drawn into studying art by curiosity and an almost by accident.


Nammari obtained her undergraduate degree in Fine Art Printmaking from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, University of Dundee where she also completed her MFA in Art and Humanities. Though she worked for the longest time at Edinburgh Printmakers as studio coordinator and master printmaker, she also worked in a variety of organisations with various of groups and individuals, from Stills in Edinburgh to National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh Academy, Women’s Aid, the Cyrenians amongst many, always in pursuit of social engagement in projects, teaching photography and printmaking, with marginalised groups, all the while, maintaining a politically and socially engaged printmaking/making practice.


She continues to work in her studio, in Patriothall, Edinburgh on various projects, through digital media, printmaking and photography - constantly curious, always courteous and consistently welcoming to all who cross her path
