Rukshana Hooda is a Semi Abstract Artist with a Foundation degree from Sir J.J. School of Art and was armed with a Diploma in Textile Design from Sophia College, Mumbai. She revisited her core and created Semi Abstract Paintings which are pertaining to designating a style of painting or sculpture in which the subject remains recognizable although the forms are highly stylized in a manner derived from abstract art. I have used charcoal in my construct as this is where we all come from and I believe in the adage, ashes to ashes, dust to dust! We will all eventually return to where we have emerged. I am also inspired with the five elements of nature, Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Void. 

Her Paintings are in the Collections of Many in Canada, UK, USA, Britain, New Mexico, Australia, Miami, Pakistan, India.
