  • About Me: Shelina Khimji an award winning Tanzanian born artist and a qualified accountant, is a self-taught artist drawn to art since her childhood.
    She was recently featured on CNN style for her artwork submitted to a Dubai based Art Studio. The studio plans to turn lockdown art into a series of large public murals across United Arab Emirates (UAE). She will also be exhibiting in World Art Dubai 2020.
    Over a decade long career, she has also been a two time finalist in the New York and Los Angeles Coffee Art Project, a winner and a runner up at the KSIJ local community art competitions, a participant in the sketchbook project where her sketchbook toured USA and Canada, as well as a regular participant in the EA Art Biennale to name a few. She has sold her paintings to Ahlulbait TV, an Islamic channel in UK for auctioning, a local airline Company in Tanzania and to a cafeteria in Australia to name a few.
    Colour and realism is her powerful symbolism as it reflects her happy persona and her ideal world imagery. She believes art has allowed her to dip her brush into her soul and paint away her fantasies. The imaginary places and dreams that she expresses on the canvas permit her to lose herself and fulfil her inner longings by bringing them alive in a painting.
    Some of the concepts of her artworks have been recognised internationally since she loves to depict her country Tanzania in a context that is so rich in culture, art and sceneries. Her inspiration also comes from the fact that a powerful piece of art talks to you thus she uses art to convey her strong beliefs when it comes to her country, the awareness of environment and the less privileged.
    She has a rich African and Arabian background since she grew up in Tanzania and inherited the Zanzibari upbringing from her parents. She completed her eduction in United Kingdom and has lived in United States of America and UAE. This combination tends to stand out in her work with the colours and layers highlighting her identity.

Good afternoon Shelina. Good to hear from you again. I was wondering what was going on. Sorry for your loss. Over used statement, but true nonetheless. If you need someone to talk to, just send me a PM. It is never easy to loose a loved one and your life is never the same. Personal experience speaking there. Look forward to seeing some of your new work soon.

Good afternoon Shelina. Just posted the beginning of Maggie Q in the 'In Process gallery' if you are interested. When the final painting is done, in my mind it no longer belongs in the 'In Process Gallery'. Kind of a statement about moving on to the next project. Sending this to you for food for thought about how some artists do things.

Good morning Shelina. Looks like I got your link back. Took a while, but looks like Joe fixed it. Very nice. Going to look at some of your stuff now. Sure beats reading the morning news.

Whoa Carl thanksss!!!! Well obviously it cant be revenge with so many tips and advises that you came up:)
I have read all of it and am assimilating the information and imagining how it would look. Certainly makes sense.
I didn't question much of my painting since my Latvian teacher and I did this together by watching the ocean which was the fun part:)
Thanks so very much for your candid comments and I will work on them further, and if in doubt I will get back to you:)
