I grew up in Birmingham, after numerous years studying and working in London, I now work between London and Birmingham. My family migrated to the UK from Pakistan when I was four years old.

My art practice examines the post-colonial body as an archive and historical geographical places as sites of cultural and political meaning. I investigate themes
of migration, embodiment, transformation, displacement, and memory. The personal narratives and testimonies of my family's migration experience, re-thinking traumatic episodes in history, where meaningful knowledge is located. I re-imagine, unravel and explore through sculpture, images, text, language, moving image, CGI, installation and sound.

I completed my MFA Fine Art in 2020 from Goldsmiths College of Art, London, 
Previously I studied Graphic Design at Royal College of Art.
