About the Artist

Shabnam Anand's art displays a sensitivity which is refreshing.Almost photographic in their reproduction, the paintings balance delicately between reality and the surreal.
Her sensual watercolours and striking acrylics have earned her international recognition and commissions from leading business houses and hotels.
Shabnam graduated in textile design in 1978in India.Based in England,her art has found international appeal. Her clientele extends worldwide , from senior company executives to royal members in the Sultanate of Brunei, to name but a few.

Although there seems an abundant and vast array of subject matter that awaits channelling, my favourite so far has been flowers! flowers speak the silent language that everyone understands;their graceful forms and intense colours, and a lasting beauty that emanates from quiet elegance has been a very satisfying and almost spiritual source of inspiration for me.
My art remains a deeper form of therapy in many ways for me.It is doubly satisfying to know that there are people who share the sentiment when they view it too.
