As a highly regarded papercutting artist, art has been an integral part of my life since a young age. Growing up in Pakistan, I had the incredible opportunity to immerse myself in the artistic world under the guidance of Sadequain, a renowned and respected artist. For five years, I would eagerly make my way to his house in F6/1 Islamabad, where I would observe his creative process, assist him, and absorb his artistic wisdom. This invaluable experience served as the foundation for my artistic journey.

It wasn't until my relocation to Australia in 2006 that I discovered my passion for paper cutting art. It all started with a simple moment shared with my five-year-old daughter. Upon expressing her boredom, I took a white piece of paper, folded it meticulously, and began delicately trimming the corners with a pair of scissors. As I unfolded the paper, a stunning sunflower emerged before our eyes. I was astounded by the beauty that could be unveiled through the art of paper cutting.

Over the past 12 years, I have dedicated myself to creating a diverse collection of art pieces, which have graced galleries across the globe and garnered national and international acclaim. I take great pride in the fact that I may be the only papercutting artist worldwide who focuses on Islamic stories, celebrating the rich heritage and teachings of Islam.

My artistic vision goes beyond aesthetics; it aims to foster connections and promote understanding. I strive to depict stories that transcend faith traditions, highlighting shared values and incorporating verses from the Quran that illuminate the essence of Islam. Every intricate detail in my designs invites viewers to engage deeply, encouraging them to ask questions and explore the themes I depict. Through my art, I hope to reveal the inherent beauty of my faith and dispel misconceptions surrounding Islam. For me, it's not solely about selling a piece of art; it's about sharing something inherently beautiful, forging connections, and leaving a positive impact on the world.

I am driven by the desire to build bridges of understanding through art, and I am committed to utilizing papercutting as a medium to connect diverse communities. My ultimate goal is to inspire dialogue, promote harmony, and create a lasting legacy of beauty and cultural appreciation.

Thank you for joining me on this artistic journey.
