Artist Statement

Bringing into focus the beauty of God's creation

Artist Bio

A self taught artist living in Maryland, USA. Studied Graphic Design at CCBC MD. Has designed various works including event flyers, brochures, banners and book covers for AMC. Khan had an artistic mind ever since young. During school her notebooks were filled with doodles. When coloring with markers did not satisfy her as a child, she started using things around the house which would do the job. Things like food coloring, fabric dyes and spices such as turmeric etc., Khan realized that she prefers hands on work over graphic design. Hence, got back into painting. This time in oils and Acrylics instead of water colors. She notices beauty in everything around her. Inspired by the nature and deep human emotions, she understands we tend to forget to appreciate the beauty in simple things around us. Moreover, usually our busy schedules take us away from nature. Her goal is to remind us of the beauty God has created for us and filled the our universe with. Realizing what beautiful treasures we have on this earth creates feelings of calm and peace within us. What better gift to give to the world than this at times like we are currently living in. Khan wishes to eradicate hate and ignorance from the universe. She engages in interfaith dialogue and volunteers in local community in hopes of spreading peace, love and understanding among people of different faiths. She believes we need to look beyond our skin colors and status, nourishing the soul. We must work towards unity, one humanity embracing all. Spreading smiles is well worth the effort.
