Khaula Siddique Artist
Khaula Siddique 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.” 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 master’s degree 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.
A true believer in the therapeutic benefits of art and the importance of preserving and telling people’s stories, she loves bringing art to the community and the community to art. She achieves this through interactive art events for the community, unique exhibitions, and public art murals with a message. Her public art can be seen throughout the GTA, in Mississauga, Brampton, Etobicoke and Toronto.
Always hungry for more, she strives to find new ways to bring art to the community and recently dove into the digital world, working hard to overcome her terror of all things tech.
Besides painting and overindulging her large, eccentric, orange tabby, she is passionate about environmental and social issues, which are the themes in much of her artwork.

I have a children’s book published about a little girl who wants to spend some time with her mother, but Mama is always just so busy! If you are interested in buying, it is available online here: SaeedBook Bank
This is not an e-book, but I wrote it when I lived in Pakistan, so it is only available in shops there. I had also written a novel there that won a commendation certificate from the National Book Foundation in Islamabad. I am still fixing it up along with two other YA novels I have written. I plan to barrage the NYT best-seller list all at once. Seriously, one day I am going to make some lucky Agent very happy.
