'Created in awe of the She in me. My knowing, my courage, my creative…
Created in awe of the He in me. My wisdom, my movement, my container…'
This first collection of art and poetry is inspired by my conversation with Nature and Spirituality and is named after verse 53:17 of the Quran, The eye did not waver… These particular lines inspire the desire to remain present in merging worlds; a possibility born from weaving in the wide steps taken from my Sufi path with Rumi, through indigenous wisdom, and encompassing myriad Guides and Ancestors that walk in the Seen and Unseen worlds. The work also reflects the merging of my Pakistani heritage with growing up in a northern English town, this exhibition presents the testimony of a wandering, whirling soul manifesting joy and unity.
'When I dream what would happen when we live to serve each other,
I imagine roses upon roses filling the world — a time not too far from now.'
