I was born in Samarkand -a town called ‘Pearl of the Silk Route ‘ -with 3000-year history as featured in Joanna Lumley recent TV series.

I moved to the UK with my family 26 years ago, and had worked as NHS Doctor ever since. Unfortunately, after contracting Covid at work in the first wave (April 2020), I have developed a Long-Covid and can only work part time now.

Discovery of   Botanical illustrations and Glass Art has played an important role in my recovery. Adult Learning Lewisham (ALL) college tutors have been wonderful in sharing their vast knowledge and experience, as well as enthusiasm and love for  Art with me .

Visual effect of bright colours , tactile effect of various textures , gentle whirring of the kiln, light pouring into the studio from big windows , lush green plants thriving in the hot kiln presence -all  brought  tranquillity into my life. By concentrating on just one task in front of me, I have achieved mindfulness which makes me quite content with my situation.

I have been taking part in various exhibitions and Fayres and charity events.

My latest exhibitions were in Battersea power station and 54 The Gallery in Mayfair. You can find more about me on Glassbydil.com
