Meeting the Artist…
Sehrish is a post-impressionism inspired artist currently residing in Norwich, UK. Growing up in Lahore, Pakistan during the 1990s and 2000s, things that inspired her as a child were animals, colours, feminism, books and rain.
She also runs hand-poured and hand-painted candles small business in small batches @ Soledad’s Atelier
Holding on hard to these childhood inspirations, she continued writing and painting. After six years of being a professional writer for different commercial blogs, she gave the profession up which was “eating up her soul and creativity” to become a full-time animal welfare professional.
However, she claimed her creativity back and continues to paint and write. She paints mainly in acrylic, and writes prose, poetry, educational articles as well as short stories.
PS: Three of her biggest inspirations are her two cats, Frodo and Tia, and her dog, Ciri, and she is obsessed with them.
Some lovely testimonials
Love Soledad’s sensitivity as a person and her colour palette as an artist! Her lovely painting of our cat Lannister is in our baby boy’s nursery 😍🤩
As someone who’s warming up to the idea of adopting a furry companion, this painting is the perfect baby step for me and a beautiful reminder to give a face to the artwork.
I see Sehrish’s paintings for the first time just over a month ago at the Vegstock Music Festival in London, and loved them all so of course i wanted one done of my little cat Roger.
