Born and raised in Pakistan, I travelled within the country and overseas with my diplomat father. Trained as a Graphic Designer, my artistic journey has been that of an explorer. Working in a variety of mediums, I often enjoy an “explosion” of colours, although working with a limited palette is equally thrilling.
Portraits, figurative art and landscapes are the themes I am currently painting.
Since 1976 I have exhibited in group and solo shows in United Kingdom, USA, Canada, Pakistan and Dubai and awarded for portraiture and abstract paintings, namely 2003 Open International Portrait Competition in Toronto.
In 2009 I had the honour of receiving the Art Educator Award for the Okanagan Arts Awards. Currently I am teaching a variety of classes in Kelowna, West Kelowna and Vernon.
