Our Artists

Dr. Bushra Thajudeen

Dr. Bushra Thajudeen is a Consultant Ophthalmologist in Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport, Wales. She graduated from Medical College, Trivandrum, India. She is a keen artist and enjoys painting as a hobby. She mainly works with oil paints and recently took up palette knife painting with acrylics too. She has been regularly painting for the last few years, hoping to achieve her dream of displaying all her artwork in an exhibition.


With the news of COVID-19 pandemic hitting India hard and the extreme crisis, she decided to donate her paintings to the Indian Society of South West Wales to raise funds for India. She wishes that her collection "Pigments of Hope through the Pandemic" brings rays of light to many lives.
