‘Time is a Healer’ from the Golden Collection 2008
Contemporary & Islamic Art
by Established International Artist
Born in Pakistan, brought up in England, I love both of these countries, one is back from my roots, the other is my home.
I knew from a very young age the intense passion I had for art from my creative abilities.
I attended Art Colleges to Universities just to add those extra techniques to my talent.
I finished with a Graphic Design degree, as to make myself commercial with a earning, but then truly realised, that money did not really mean everything to me.
If I couldn’t follow my heart and soul purpose in life, what was the point of me doing something just for a good income.
I did however enjoy my career as a Graphic Designer and have no regrets, the good was, it prepared me for all the things I need to do as a succesful artist today, the bad for me was, I did not enjoy the intense computer work that went with it and the little creative freedom I had, due to deadlines!
I soon chose to free my spirits and creative mind by travelling around the world, just to capture all the true beauty, the colours, culture and life of everything around the globe, that I could inject later on into my art work. Travelling around the world made me appreciate who I am and what I have, and how fortunate I trully am than others.
My goal in life is, as an artist is to think about others, share my talent, and use my talent to make a difference to those that are less fortunate than me.
So I believe I am here on this earth for purpose.
A purpose to make a difference for the better in my life and others in a good and positive way.
