About Me

This is my cv which will give you an idea about me and my work : cv2017art-gen

For more details of where I am coming from as an artist you might like to see my MA dissertation : MA Rukshana Afia August 2003

 There are also 2 essays which I did leading up to my MA written work  –Some Aspects of Figurative Art in the Islamic World 2000 & Contemporary Islamic Religious Art 2001 . I apologise for the lack of images in these – at the time I couldn’t integrate them into the essays ! One day I will add them somehow , I promise .

Linda Smith , the mosaic/digital photography artist did an online interview with me which you can find here .
