President Mississauga Chapter
Khaula Mazhar is a self-taught, professional artist. Born and raised in Canada, the daughter of South Asian immigrants, whose main aim in life was to produce doctors or engineers. Her father pointed at her in her warm York County Hospital bassinet proclaiming, “this one’s going to be a doctor.” Needless to say, the story went quite differently and this is why you should never assume in life. While she did dutifully pursue an education in science, earning her Masters in Biochemistry, she now gets paid to scribble on everything from small pieces of paper to large walls. Any surface will do as long as she can paint a story on it.
