I maintain Art Cloth Studios in San Antonio, Texas, and teach a dozen workshops a year. My website is

this is visual poetry by Sarah Ahmad

8 June 2010 - Filed under Ahmad, Sarah + female + Pakistan


My name is Sarah Ahmad and I was born in India and live in Pakistan. I see myself as a struggling poet and artist as in my world where life is so fragile, not knowing if you will return alive every time you step out of the house, getting someone to acknowledge your art is a real struggle.

Sarah says: “My work here is me struggling to make even a little bit of sense out of what is going on in the world around me, for the sake of preserving my sanity. This book consists of work that incorporates photography and scanned objects with minimal text.”
