My name is Hadia Shaikh and I am a Pakistani-American who has been a native to Indianapolis, IN for a countless number of years. I am an avid museum visitor and art fanatic -which this website is sort of mainly dedicated to and all the wonders and thoughts I've encountered in my adult life. I hold a BA in Art History with one too many internships in the arts and museums. My educational adventures continue as I work towards my MA in Museum Studies. I aspire to work in an art museum managing collections and developing exhibits (curator life, one day).
I've studied abroad in Madrid, Spain, Barcelona, Spain, and lived in Paris, France. I enjoy Islamic Art and Contemporary Art.
Firm believer in getting dressed up, going out, and sharing good wholehearted conversation even on the tiresome long days...There is nothing like a great pair of heels to put you in the greatest mood. Hardly am I found glued to my couch.
My goals list is endless but includes visiting over 100 museums, exploring the west coast, running marathons, traveling, working in a curatorial department, and getting my PhD. Follow me on my art and museum adventures through my Instagram handle: @khaishbyh.
