Saba Rasheed is a contemporary mixed media painter, specializing in water-based pigments including watercolor, semi-precious mineral paint, henna, tea combined with enhancements with metal, acrylics, and other materials. Her work combines thin transparent layers that are built up to produce rich textures with occasional hints of Kufic style Arabic calligraphy and subtle illustration. Her work is most often produced on linen or wood surface as well as some exploration on ceramic plates and panels. The overall visual impact is a contemporary result with hints of antiquity.
Saba was born in Lahore Pakistan, received a MFA in painting from Pratt Institute and currently resides in Dallas Texas.
