Today I'm bringing you an interview with Anila Quayyum Agha. I am very grateful that Anila agreed to be on the podcast. She offers insight on how growing up in Pakistan, light and shadow, and how multicultural-influence are important in informing her artistic style. I'm including images of her work below, and a link to her website so you can see more of her work.
