As a self-taught artist Afsheen has always been inspired by landscapes, honing her skills for the last several years.
Afsheen’s particular passions are composition and colour, used to capture her own unique interpretation of a scene.
Originally, Afsheen focussed more on pen & ink work, inspired by the Pakistani artist Iqbal Mehdi, whose students tutored her for a short period in her early years in Karachi, Pakistan.
Over the last few years, Afsheen has shifted her focus towards landscapes in oil. She has transferred the energy of her pen & ink style of using repetitive lines to oil painting, which lends a unique urgency and freshness to her work. For her, the process of creation is as important as the end work. Paintings are done quickly using wet paint to create interesting accidents.
Afsheen’s work has been selected for exhibition at the Lightbox gallery in Woking through the Surrey Open Arts competition and the Mall Galleries, London through the BBC programme ‘Show Me the Monet’. She also exhibited at the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in 2019.
