Norma HidsonAbeera Atique is an amazing woman! She is an outstanding inspirational art educator and a fantastic artist! Abeera's works always display passion. Behind each piece that she creates you can see that there is a story. It could be of a adventurous hero or of a young reflective student. She paints with her heart and soul. Abeera's talents have spread throughout the NE/SA (Near East/South Asia) region of educators. Frequently she is asked to provide the cover design for various ISG and NE/SA programs. She is a talented, delightful, and gifted artist!

Vargie JohnsonAbeera Atique: the Artist and the Illustrator. A magnificent illustrator, who on numerous occasions I have heard being described as a talented, innovative artist whose colorful work is full of imagination and understanding of the subject portrayed. However, it is her work in the medium of black and white ink sketches which captivated me. Abeera’s emphasis on detail brings her art pieces to life—it is for this reason that I asked her to illustrate the covers of 8 of my books using this style. As a person, once you meet her, you cannot help but be enthralled by her passion and devotion to art. She is an artist who has many different kinds of imagination: one filled with colors and design and the other filled with black and white images. The covers she did for my books are beautifully designed, bringing to life the complex characters that I have portrayed in my books. Go to my website and check out her illustrations that are on the covers of my books…

Mark ChamberlainLawrence of Arabia: Writer and Warrior Whenever I promote my book I hang the illustrations Abeera did for me around the walls of the auditorium. Invariably they elicit very enthusiastic responses. Abeera's illustrations bring my book alive and provide striking visuals for a proud time in Arabian history. Whether still life or action Abeera's exceptional ability is more than equal to the task. Working with Abeera on a project is such a joy: she is so gracious and amenable to any request. Any writer lucky enough to work with her will be able to bring their work up to another level.

DaveHabitat for Humanity Abeera is a free spirit and a joy. For five years she has supported the Habitat for Humanity program at Dhahran High School both with the funds she raised with her annual Art Show, and with her active participation on our trips to build houses in Sri Lanka. We can't imagine the Habitat for Humanity program here without Abeera. She has done so much to teach the students to live for others. Her art reflects this spirit in so many ways

Sandy StappNational Honor Society Abeera Atique's colorful classroom at Dhahran High School is filled with engaged students who, on a daily basis, are inspired by their gifted instructor to create beautiful artwork. When her students speak of Ms. Atique, it is always in glowing terms with the words amazing, inspiring, generous and gifted used of her often. She has enriched our campus with her beautiful spirit and with the artistic gifts she shares so willingly with the students and staff. Students with little confidence in their artistic ability flourish under her watchful care and begin to enjoy the creative process. It is an honor to be on staff with Abeera Atique and exciting to see her work appreciated around the world.

David ChojnackiNear East South Asia Council of Overseas Schools Abeera Atique's sensitive artwork has been featured in covers for a number of our conference programs. She manages to capture feelings and moods through her skillful use of line, color and theme in a unique way. Her love of her subjects comes through. (On a personal note, I have acquired some of her artwork for my home.)
