Artist Sculptor Teacher

The work explores themes relating to my cultural heritage as a British, Indian, Muslim female. Through a highly personal sculptural language the work attempts to visually translate my own experiences: from architecture, landscape and nature to communal engagements.

The physicality of carving is for me, an introspective and ritualistic activity that enables me to interpret these reference points and bring them together in a series of carvings that are in essence meditative and contemplative. The reductive process of removing and polishing material enables me to visually synthesise complex themes into simple forms.
