Education: Leeds Metropolitan University

Shazia's travels across Latin America and Africa inspired her fairy tale art. Her paintings are childlike yet suggest a deeper story lies beneath the surface of the canvas. 


Following the completion of her graphic design degree at Leeds Metropolitan University, Shazia embarked on a journey of self-discovery. On her travels, she drew using only pen and paper - something she says helped her to produce her most honest sketches to date. 

Upon returning to the UK,  Shazia worked as a designer before going freelance and starting a family. She is now a full-time artist and is known for her innocent artworks, which are created using travel diaries, people-watching and her own imagination.
