My parents emigrated from Karachi, Pakistan to Canada in the mid 70s. I was born in Nova Scotia, grew up in Ontario and received my BFA in Painting in 2017 from the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary. 

Currently, I am living in New York City completing my MFA Fine Arts degree at the School of Visual Arts.

My work deals with cultural hybridity, where I manipulate and reconfigure essentialized visual tropes from Islamic South Asian and Western culture to express the liminal spaces that open up when imposed identities collide.
