A Sculpturewalk favourite, Rabi'a loves to create beautiful works from found or recycled objects. Along with partner Carl Schlichting, she won the People's Choice Award in 2016 for "Imagine The Stories".

In "Housing Crisis" she has fashioned dozens of various-size metal houses and, seemingly haphazardly but with care, affixed them cheek to jowl in a cascading jumble of colour. It is reminiscent of a south Mediterranean village but these are vibrant and brilliant, not uniformly whitewashed. Her delightfully charming work sits on long skinny steel legs, a distinct counterpoint to the mass above them.
