I am a freelance artist, blogger and author, focusing on the positive aspects of living. I’ve been painting all my life, with eleven solo exhibitions under my belt and many group shows. Over 800 articles published in some of the leading dailies of Pakistan most of these in Dawn newspaper.
I really enjoy the funny side of life, yet love deep, spiritual and thought-provoking aspects too. Mostly, in my posts, I emphasize and appreciate many things we take for granted. Most of my writings are about the day-to-day observations and inspirations. Being an artist, I love to share with you paintings, and artistic moments. So naturally, I also like to share any books or literary events that I come across. Main thing is to enjoy this life in spite of all the hazards and hardships that we face. It always pays to focus on the thrills of living, while finding peace within.
