Ayesha Samdani

Ayesha Samdani was born and raised in Pakistan. She immigrated to the United States after completing her MA degree in Fine Arts. She also earned an MFA in abstract painting from Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Through fine arts she has learned a way to express the feelings and emotions of her heart. Her work is inspired by nature, particularly organic shapes, and colors. These colors have a very strong impact on her personality and paintings as they remind her of her cultural background. She uses a various limited color palette for each painting to depict different moods of nature. Through variations of lines, layers, and color palette, she explores the sensitivity and delicacy of changing seasons. Painting is her passion, and she has been painting and drawing for the last eighteen years. Currently she is living and painting as a full-time artist in the Bay Area. She is represented by John Natsoulas Gallery in Davis, California. She has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions including shows at Arc Galley in SF, Berkeley Arts Center in Berkeley, and Triton Museum in Santa Clara.
