She is a Pakistani-American. Iqbal’s passion for painting encompasses street scenes and traditional old city buildings which are also balanced with images of daily life.

“I feel proud to be able to share my work with everyone and being able to communicate the beauty I perceive through my paintings is a great blessing to me,” Iqbal says.

She has had the opportunity to have her work exhibited in several galleries, throughout the New York metropolitan area, including Room By Room and Barnes Gallery in Garden City, at Sam’s Art Gallery in Flushing, Queens and at My Studio in Port Washington.

Iqbal has also participated in several exhibitions throughout Lahore, Pakistan where she obtained her Master’s Degree in Fine Art, with a focus on figure drawing. She has studied oil painting, watercolor, pastel, charcoal, acrylic and many other techniques.

“I look forward to exhibiting more of my work soon,” she says.
