Shehla Mahmood
I am an artist with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts. My preferred art mediums are oil and acrylic. My inspiration behind my vibrant art pieces is my son Mir, who struggles with autism. Mir is an extraordinary, energetic, imaginative and creative child. My work represents visually appealing bright patterns, and bold strokes of color which highlight the positive aspects of an autistic child’s imagination. Recently, I launched beautiful hand-painted pottery. Each piece of pottery has a story to tell.

First comes a splashy, colorful background. This sets the composition and color palette. “Natural history” and “fine art”, come together. Aspects become representational. My art is purchased by entomologists -- it must be scientifically accurate.
