"Being inspired by several professional artists in my family I majored in Art, and started as an instructor at the same university. It was during my teaching years that I explored myself as an artist with better understanding of seeing and interpreting. I enjoy the process of painting in several mediums and my choice of subject matter also has a wide range. Like majority of artists, I started as a realistic painter, seeking to be more abstract. But at this stage I just want my journey to never end."

Europe, Asia, Pakistan
Can you share a fond, or unusual, memory of plein air painting?
