Art is my safe place. My art is a tangible rendition of what I feel, as life happens. It lets me enjoy and cherish moments that are colorful, soulful and infinitely peaceful.  As an artist I work hard to create work that carries a cohesive signature that is an unhindered extension of me. An abstract expression of a moment, a personal story, an awe-struck moment provoked by a person, an emotion or the grandeur of nature. I  rely on acrylics, oils, pastels and inks. They allow me an opportunity to create texture, depth and movement, using light and strokes to invoke peace, calm and more importantly offering you a perspective that is unique to just you. I hope you enjoy both bodies of of my work, it is always a joy to share it with others.

my heart is full oil, pastel & ink on canvas 36"x48" A few months ago, a group of adoring friends approached me to create this custom piece for their friend. A surprise. Creating art always feels like a gift, but to create something special and capture the intent and emotions behind it and have it received with so much love leaves me beyond humble and grateful.

Few weeks ago in July a group of lovely ladies reached out to me to commission a piece specifically to surprise their beloved friend for her 40th!! I thought this was the sweetest thing ever and I get to be a part of it. What an honor and how unbelievably exciting. Then it gets even better when these friends and I continue those creative conversations and I finally find out that this special birthday friend about to be surprised with my work is someone I also know and adore!! I am beyond happy.

Original art by Umbreen Ahmad. While this original piece of art uses only tones of white and grey. I am able to create movement and depth with the many shades of the those colors, leaving the interpretation to you. To me it is a serene scene of a snow covered cliff and to her son it is most definitely a dinosaur with a very big bold horn. Lucky for us beauty is in the eye of the beholder. NFS

acrylic on canvas 36”x48” original art You know what is absolutely magical about abstract art? It lets me tell a secret. A personal story with, beautiful emotion that move us, make us strong or make us care. I use acrylic paint to tell stories all the time, but here I have told a deep and bold secret. Plastered it all over this large storyboard, yet in the end, that secret stays abstract and it stays mine. NFS

I started painting in my teens. It started out as a means to satisfy a humanities requirement for a college credit. Little did I know I was about to stumble upon a wonderful addiction. I remember my art professor announcing to me that I must be bold as a person, since my paintings tend to carry audaciousness. This surprised me because I was a pretty shy teenager, but it revealed to me that, art is an expression that invokes a powerful connection independent of words. Ever attempt to scream or laugh without making a sound? Art can do all that for us and then some.
