Painting to me is solving puzzles of my brain, I want to be able to portray the people, events, and colors that have inspired me.
Art has been around me all my life. As a seamstress, my mom had me tracing designs on clothes since I was 3 years old. Growing up in Pakistan, busses showcase ancestral origins with lines of poetry interwoven with ethnic iconography.
As an adult, my formal art education began at Texas State University, San Marcos. I earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts with a specialty in painting. Since then I have spent a decade working on commissioned artwork on walls, floors, and ceilings. This trade has allowed me to develop and share my skills as an artist, while also working on my own collection of dozens of acrylic and ink on canvas paintings.
