In life as in art, casual connections are made to landscapes that inspire us - we are acted upon as much as we act.
“ I am interested in beautiful scenery, natural landscapes. I want to share my interpretation of this vision. I am especially interested in The West Coast of Scotland, and the great American North West, particularly The Yosemite Valley. These landscapes are the most spectacular landscapes I have ever seen and I am compelled to paint them. The scenery has left a mark on my consciousness and these are my most recent paintings.”
— Shazia Mahmood, 2009
