Arif is a landscape painter who spends much of her spare time travelling the UK, where she is inspired by its enchanting coastlines, quaint rural villages and woodland areas. Her weather filled works, portray the relationship between the land, sea and the forces of nature, closely mirroring the way in which the land and weather can shape our emotions, hopes and aspirations. Her work is textured, magnetic and atmospheric. Collectors of Arif’s work recount a feeling of sensory immersion describing the emotion and energy you can feel when viewing her work.
Her own story starts in Rochdale, where as a child her deep affection for drawing and painting led her to be regularly scolded by teachers for drawing in her text books.
Immersing herself fully into these environments, she applies paint to the surface quickly and energetically.
