Saliha is a self taught artist who grew up in Pakistan. As a teenager, she would sit with her father and close friend, both of whom used art as a respite from life’s struggles and as an intensely private pastime.

Perhaps that is why she uses art to soothe the soul. She always thought that her art communicates her message better than she does verbally because there are layers and meanings of the soul that she finds easier to describe using color and shape.

Since 2005, she’s lived in the US, Tanzania, Pakistan and the UK. She’s a mother of three and lives in Queens, New York. She says she will always remain a learner, and she is excited to share her journey with others.
