A firm believer in Art as Therapy, Shamila found that working with clay helped her to overcome a battle with severe post-natal depression. What started as a form of therapy has now become a passionate hobby for all things clay.

Shamila  offers both classes and  works on customised commissions. Popular with members of the Indian community are the platters and wall hangings that are inspired by religious themes.
