She takes inspiration from Abdur Rahman Chughtai, a renowned Pakistani artist who has done much work to preserve South Asian cultural heritage of Mughal Art. 

“I am naturally gravitated towards eastern art from Indo-Pakistan and Islamic calligraphy that is portrayed in my work. Inspired by Mughal history and Islamic culture, I bring both worlds together through my art and send a powerful message of co-existence.”
