Nafisa is a freelance visual artist, art historian, author and educator based in Brampton with around 7 years of experience in pastels, Charcoal, acrylic, watercolour. “Her subject matter is nature, whether it is a traditional landscape or a bird and flower painting. She uses a colourful palette of materials, to capture movement and life — making the brush dance and the colours sing. Everything is captured in the spontaneous dance and movement of the brush as it foretells a story. The story of the artist and the world around her.”. She has exhibited globally in several group exhibitions in India, UAE, US, Canada, Lebanon, Brussels, Turkey, France, Russia, Singapore, Qatar and Ukraine. She has also authored a Book “Mughal Jewellery: An Insight to the Jewellery under the Mughals”.

Apart from this, she has been awarded Ratan-e-Hind Award for Excellence in Abstract Art, Delhi, India.
