I was born in Balochistan, Pakistan and initially studied Fine Arts at Balochistan University. In 2008, I moved to Lahore to complete my studies at the National College of Arts (NCA), majoring in Sculpture. I graduated with Distinction in 2013.

My thesis show, Sustained (2013), investigated the impact of physical and metaphorical burdens on the human form. Later sculptures and drawings have continued to enquire into this theme, exploring the effects of historic and geographical inheritances, and of contemporary political developments, through the manipulation of new materials and techniques.

After graduating, I taught Sculpture at NCA, completed several large-scale commissions, and exhibited extensively in Pakistan. In 2016, I moved to the UK, where I have participated in Arts Council England-funded projects and exhibited as a solo artist (Beyond the Shadow of a Doubt, Hartlepool Art Gallery, 2017). I continue to show my work in Pakistan, mostly in Karachi and Lahore (Under the Dust, Sanat Initiative 2016, Fool’s Gold, 2018). My work has been collected by MIMA (2020), and reviewed and discussed in national and international publications.
