Textiles provide texture to the lives of past societies and craft objects are able to access more social spaces than their producers. It is that very texture and transformative space that is central to my research and practice.  As a Scottish Pakistani artist, I am constantly looking for new ways to connect my work with diverse communities. I use interdisciplinary methods, such as Embroidery, film, and photography.

Through immersing myself in different cultures and encountering broad artistic thinking I hope to discover new ways of creating a bridge between western and indigenous craft culture. I wish to study how artistic barriers can be broken down between cultures.
