Dr. Umama Khan from Karanagar, Kashmir is a dentist by profession.
She says, I was in 2nd standard when I was awarded with first prize all over India in art competition held by Indian Express and Camlin Colours, and that win simply gave wings to my talent though I have won countless competitions with first prize but this one boosted me up, I want to continue it and InshaAllah will soon start with 3D paintings. I was always encouraged by my family for making sketches, especially my father, he inspired me in such a way that sketching became my passion. All my sketches are made on a normal chart paper and with simple pencil, all the shadings, darker and lighter effects I have given by my hands. I have no formal training nor I am any professional in this stream its just creativity runs in my blood.
