I'm a Pakistani-Canadian artist and community facilitator based in Mississauga. My work explores relationships, such as that between landscape and organism, between identity and displacement, and between line and colour.
I am currently collaborating with writer (and my sister), Manahil, on a visual and literary arts project, Reth aur Reghistan, that intends to engage young South-Asians through visual storytelling. We have collected folklore from Sindh, Pakistan, and are creating sculptures and poetry based on these stories.
I work with neurodiverse children and run sensory-based workshops in Mississauga, integrating my interests in well-being and creative expression.
I have facilitated community arts projects such as an interactive mural created by adults with disabilities, and have had my worked published in several publications including Existere, Nuance, and Living Hyphen. When I'm not running around preparing for a workshop or scribbling on paper, I can be found playing the ukulele or going on a hike.
