About this instructor:
Humaira Abid picks up ordinary images from everyday life and makes them extraordinary. Her basic interest is situations in relationships and their after effects. Some of her work is humorous, some ironical. Her themes are timeless. The presentation is contemporary. She turns, carves, constructs in wood and combines it with different mediums with great skill and detailing.
Abid is one of a small number of female sculptors to rise to the top of her field. Her commitment to her artistic career is illustrated by her continuous pursuit and participation in art residencies, art exhibitions, symposiums and workshops.
Abids work has been reviewed by the Seattle Times, the Stranger, KUOW Public Radio, the Seattle Weekly and the Huffington Post. She has appeared in the Strangers Arts & Performances Quarterly magazine, Sculptural Pursuit, American art collector magazine and in-flight magazine of AIR INDIA. Documentaries have been produced on Abid's work by PBS KCTS9 TV Chanel (which got nominated for NW Emmy Awards) and Bellevue Arts Museum, WA, USA.
She has exhibited her exquisite work nationally and internationally including in Malaysia, India, Pakistan, Mauritius, Nepal, Kenya, Dubai, Bolivia, Germany, Russia, UK, USA and won many awards and grants. Abid recently got awarded Artist Trust Fellowship. Her work has been exhibited in prestigious galleries and museums throughout the world and been published in books, catalogues and newspapers internationally.
