Born in 1987 in the bustling metropolis of Mumbai, India, Zoya has always been awe-struck by art and its ability to captivate and narrate without spoken words. A technology graduate, she is a self-taught artist residing in the UAE since a decade, who has taken painting as her creative outlet and passion to find solace in the fast-paced world. Inspired by nature and the intricacies of life, Zoya’s art explores the relationship between places, people and natural beauty that surrounds our existence. Creating art for her is a way of communicating with others and connecting with her inner-self on a spiritual and emotional level. When not painting, Zoya is an avid reader, writer, and a loving mother. She has a flair for writing poetry and has collected a treasure trove of writing over the years. Her paintings are usually accompanied by quotes or a short snippet of poetry that express her interpretation and motivation behind the work.
