Meet The Artist
I am Shukri Khan, a self taught artist based in Baltimore MD, USA. I first started drawing painting as a teen. But returned to it many years later after having done raising my lovely kids.
All the in between years I used my creativity in many different ways. But still, always dreamt of painting. My artist story goes something like this. One day I got myself some oil paints and a canvas and started painting a local water view I loved. That was about 4 years ago. I was fortunate to get my family’s support, which keeps me going. By now I’ve exhibited locally and sold close to 100 artworks and worked on several commissions. My work is in private collections internationally.
Growing up in Pakistan, I really enjoyed the morning walks with my grand father. Still my best memories. Perhaps it were these morning walks with my grandfather on the bridge in my hometown Rabwah and later Rose Garden in Islamabad, Pakistan, which helped me learn to enjoy and appreciate the beauty in surrounding nature.
