ABOUT ART BY SABIHA
Sabiha Zaveri grew up in Mumbai, India, and graduated with a degree in Psychology from the University of Bombay. After her marriage, in 1974, she moved to Tokyo, Japan, for three years, then on to Dubai and Kuwait, with a brief stay in Antwerp, Belgium. In 1985, Sabiha moved to New York with her family.
With her exposure to international cultures, Sabiha developed an appreciation for different forms of art. During her free time, she enrolled in the local art classes and began experimenting with water colors and pastels. She found those particular media very appealing and continued with her art instruction.
Around 2000, Sabiha joined Studio 703, in New York, where her art instructor, Genia Neuschatz, encouraged her to try acrylics, which became her primary interest. Over the years, Sabiha evolved with expert instruction. Being around other artists in the studio, inspired and motivated her to aspire further.
In 2014, by chance, she was introduced to Mixed Media which really caught her interest. Having pursued the acrylic medium, she incorporated it into an experimental Mixed Media/Abstract Art, in which she eventually found her “niche” and developed her own unique eclectic technique.
With increasing sales, commissioned works, and a continued appreciation of her art, Sabiha’s enthusiasm to pursue her own distinctive style of art has continued to grow.
Art, for Sabiha, has become an opportunity for “freedom of expression” of colors, textures, patterns, creativity and flair!
Sabiha continues to live in New York with her husband and two adult children.
