Shireen is a Los Angeles-based artist and fashion designer. She is from Houston, TX and lived in the Chicago Northwest suburbs for much of her childhood and young adulthood. Her love for drawing started at around 4 years old with her preferred medium being pencil drawing until her late twenties when she fell in love with oil painting. She is a self-taught painter with a style that can be characterized as a kind of surrealism with a focus on elements of art history and antiquity, specifically sculpture. The subject matter in her art is done mainly in greyscale with dramatic shadows, highlights, and pops of color. Every piece has symbolic meanings and reflects aspects of her own life experiences. Her art is mostly influenced by her travels, ancient cultures, and the beauty of nature.
