Welcome to my website !
ABEERA ATIQUE has been in the field of Art since the age of three. Having attained a Masters Degree in Fine Arts, she has been displaying her works in a variety of different medias for over 20 years. Abeera has been part of various exhibitions and is very well known among the artists of not only Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, but also throughout the NESA (North East South Asia Conferences) region.
In August 2014 Abeera moved to UAE to join The Emirates National School as an MYP, DP Visual Arts Teacher and an Art & P.E Department Coordinator. Prior to that she was teaching Fine Arts at Dhahran High school in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia.
In her thirteen years at DHS she was also named the Art Department Chair and NESA (North East South Asia Conferences) Rep for the International Schools Group across Saudi Arabia. She has been a part of NESA since 2000, and has been attending the NESA conferences for the past 13 years internationally. Abeera has aslo been a regular presenter at the NESA Conferences held in Thailand as well as the Cover Page Illustrator for the official NESA Conference magazines six years in a row.
As well as NESA Abeera has been invited as a featured speaker by ECIS ( European Council of International Schools ) to Spain, and as a presenter at TARA (The Arabian Reading Association) held in Bahrain and PechaKucha in Saudi Arabia. She has also been an active member of charity organisations such as Habitat for Humanity and TCF (The Citizens Foundation of Pakistan).
Alongside her Masters degree in Fine Arts Abeera holds a Bachelors degree in Home economics and numerous certifications in the field of ceramics, Digital Design, Interior Designing, English and a Toast Masters. With a solid 15 years of teaching experience, Abeera has mastered teaching all age groups in a multicultural environment.
Throughout her years as an artist, Abeera has had the opportunity to travel around the world and witness numerous Ancient and modern masterpieces of Art; from the Sistine Chapel in Rome to the Al-Hamra Palace in Spain. Abeera's thorough understanding of ancient roman and Islamic art has inspired the theme for many of her recent solo exhibitions. In the past three years, Abeera has illustrated around 21 books out of which 9 have been published by Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com and were released in the market in March 2006. Due to these illustrations she has been offered numerous jobs in New York over the last two years; however her preference to remain in the Middle East has kept her from pursuing any such offers.
Abeera has most recently completed her Post Graduate Certification in International Education with merit from Nottingham University.
