Ayesha Khwaja has done her bachelors in Fine Arts from Moore College of Art and Design, in Philadelphia. She was formally educated in Graphic Design and Photography and has been working as a Photographer and a Graphic Designer for over a decade.  Though formally trained in Graphic Design and Photography, she has been a painter her whole life.  As much as she enjoys her work as a photographer and a Graphic Designer, she does not get the level of personal satisfaction and freedom of self expression the way she gets it when she paints.

 

She has had several exhibitions of paintings and photography in the DC metro area.  Her work has been recognized and published by few of the major and well known publications like the Smithsonian Magazine, National Geographic Magazine, Anokhi Media Magazine and Washingtonian Magazine.

 

Her paintings are one of a kind, which means they cannot be duplicated.  If you are inquiring about any of the art work for purchase then please contact the studio.  She can be commissioned to do a painting for a residence, commercial or a personal gift.
