Edinburgh College of Art Degree Show 2011My short existence has been greatly influenced by my Muslim father and Christian mother; this has formed a deep and complex outlook on culture and faith which has gone through periods of anger, revelation and peace.

My work is not a final thought, definite answer or opinion. My work can be a question, the visualisation of a spiritual journey or a milestone which by no means progresses towards any definite answer but conveys a specific spiritual influence or thought in time.

Through painting I explore religious symbolism from different cultures and periods in history which interest me. I explore the use of certain spiritual symbols in different contexts and situations and watch how this affects the viewer’s experience as well as an expression of my inner thoughts.
